SDK Roller: How to include help files and merge with VS Help system RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have some questions regarding the Windows CE 6.0 R3 SDK Roller.

    How can I include help file collections into the SDK and have the installer merge my help files with VS help.

    TIA,

    Bjoern

    The way I've done this in the past was to download and install the Visual Studio SDK and to use the included Help Integration Wizard to create a project for generating the installer for integrating my help files into Visual Studio.  I then used a third-party installer tool to add my help file installer to my SDK installer as a chained install package.  You can most likely accomplish the same using just the tools and APIs included with the Windows Installer SDK, but for me the time savings of a 3rd party tool was worth the expense.

  • Tom,

    thank you very much for the answer.

    I'll go ahead and install VS SDK and Windows Installer SDK.
