The DDK docs are on those CD's, but the tools, libs and other stuff are missing :(

Just so no-one else wastes their time.

Darn HTML Help 2. F*ck*n* useless addition to the MS family of nouveau scripting trash :)

"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Help\dexplore.exe" /helpcol ms-help://MS.MSDNQTR.2003APR.1033

i tried double clicking on the .hxs files and then when the window came up i located and chose dexplorer.exe to view the files, but it gave me an error message saying 'invalid switch'...wtf

EDIT: lol nm...i had installed it but didnt bother to look under start menu - >programs - >msdn april 2003!! its all working perfectly now :grin: thanks anyway

WooHooooooo



I have managed to get HTML Help 2 to come up when searching for a keyword from RadASM. I am soooo happy right now, RadASM with the most up to date docs. Just a few more things to iron out (need a more current version of Qweerdy's MSDNHelp addin) and all is good in the world. I can finally free up some space by removing MSDN VS6

Hi Donkey,

Where did you get MS Help 2 compiler? I searched all over M$ site and as far as I remember found only
statment that went like this: at present time we are not giving H2 compiler to download.

Regards, GJ

Microsoft has discontinued MSHelp 2 and will not be offering an SDK or compiler for it. You can search for VSHIK on MSDN and you can get some info. Only the PlatSDK and MSDN library will ever be published in HTMLHelp 2, that is to ensure that no IDE other than VS.NOT can access it directly (Now RadASM as well :) )

For those who wish to use the new MSDN with RadASM see this thread , this is a tentative solution until I figure out all of the COM junk for my DExplore version which might take a while.
