Anyone have a Windows XP win help .exe file they can send me? Having a devil of a time getting the help files to run in Win10.

I just happened  ::) to find a link where you can snag it from. But it'll probably be gone pretty soon.

The shortcut I use in my start menu/desktop/etc for opening the help file has a target of:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\ProMash\winhlp32.exe" "C:\Program Files (x86)\ProMash\PROMASH.HLP"

Works well for me on Win8.1

Thanks a bunch.

For some reason it wasn't even letting me install the executable direct from Microsoft.

I'm working on a way to convert the file from the .hlp extension to an HTML format that can be used in the newer operating sytems without issue.

Does this open the files internally while in ProMash or through win32hlp.exe?

win32hlp.exe is a super basic HTML browser if I recall. That command is opening the .HLP into the .exe kernel.

I'm contemplating just PDFing the whole help file.

No, it won't open the help file correctly from within promash. I do, however, have a separate 'launcher' in my start menu for ProMash Help that opens correctly.

I recall playing with ways to get the help file to open with win32hlp directly from within ProMash but never succeeded.

A PDF is a reasonable alternative to having to find a (essentially, pirated) version on win32hlp.exe from some poor soul on the internet :D.  As long as it's quickly and easily navigable then it would be a good alternative. IMO

I had an issue with my Gdrive the other day and the files are gone from the folder. I'll have them back up in a few days. PM for directly for files if need be until then.

You should use services like Google Drive or drop box to prevent any mishaps. Good luck with restors.

It would probably just be easier to edit that yourself. Just find out what varieties are missing and add them. Then over time just change your AA%s based on what's available to you. I haven't bothered changing the hop database because all the hops I'm interested in are in there. I just change AA% to suit me.
