Fairly simple question. I am upgrading some rather old software. I have converted some old help (.hlp) files to the more modern and common .chm format. This is no problem.
However i have problems calling and displaying the new files from the application GUI. Yes this is a WinApp application. What are the steps i have to follow to make this work? The things i have tried so far either led to the old.hlp file being displayed or nothing being displayed. Is ShellExecure a good way to go ?? If i include the WinHelp file with the application, would the old .hlp files still work in Vista?? I have read that vista does not support old .hlp files (i am still using xinxp pro here at work).
Sorry, but i am quite new to c++. I used to code delphi and then java. Later the program code will be updated to VS2005 (or higher), but that's another story.
I have looked at that before, without trying to implement it. Do i really have to include all of the htmlhelp stuff into the c++ header (include htmlhelp.h etc) There MUST be an easier way, right ? (shellexecute) Yes i know that would not enable going to specific topics within help file, but this is not needed for now anyway.
