    Re: Help on Help

    Hi Leif;
    Here I'm again, reporting:
    The shortcut applies mostly to W98. nevertheless, decided to give it a try (mostly because my W2K initially was an upgrade from W98. Only in the beginning, as now I have the rollup 1 W2K SPK4).:
    Located Hhctrl.ocx, and its version (5.23790.233 I'd believe older than 4.37.8421).
    Tried to register it (had to use regedit, because regsvr seems (I believe), to apply to W98). It didn't. It says Hhctrl.ocx is not a registry file.
    Then (as it was offered) tried the alternative of downloading Windows HTML Help.
    It seems to me, it's a tool for programmers to CREATE Help applications.
    Nevertheless, gave it a try.
    Installed the HTML, but still cannot open help from Start.
    Problem remains.
    Any suggestions?

    Thanks (again) in advance.

    Daniel Rozenberg.
