    Hi
    What is Hh.exe and do I need on my system? If so, how do I find it?
    I have searched my system but i don't seem to find it. I tried installing Nitro reader 2, but
    cannot access the User Guide directly from the nitro site
    My Os Windows 7 Pro.
    Help please
    Regards
    Dave

    hh.exe is the Windows program used to display compiled help. It should be installed with Windows and be in the C:\windows\system32 folder for 32-bit Windows 7 or in the C:\Windows\syswow64 folder for 64-bit Windows 7. If you believe it is not installed try running SFC /SCANNOW from an elevated command prompt.

    You weren't able to download the PDF version of the Nitro Reader 2 User Guide?

    Hi Joe
    The SFC/SCANNOW did not find any integrity violations. Please explain.
    The closest folder I can see on system32 is hhsetup.dll. Does this mean anything?
    Many thanks

    Hi Bruce,
    I was trying to access the User Guide directly from the Nitro site. When I try this it only opens but goes no further, the right side
    remains blank, just hanging. I can open the PDF version.
    I would like to sort out the hh.exe problem if this is supposed to be on my system.
    Many thanks
    Dave

    Oops. Missed the one in C:\Windows. It is there on my 64-bit Windows 7 system too.

    C:\Windows is the only place on a 32-bit Windows 7 Enterprise system.

    The User Guide which can't be opened here is .chm, not .hlp, so WinHlp32.exe is not relevant.

    download a program called "everything" it will find practically any file on your comp by typing in its name and show where it is installed and even jump to the location of the file for you. Far better and faster than windows search.
