Title: macros17.hlp in windows 10
Post by: Mark Laing on November 13, 2015, 10:20:45 AM
After a long absence I'm getting back into Designcad like I want to. I have windows ten and dcad 23. (upgrading soon). Windows doesn't want to run the file. The Microsoft file to make it go comes in every windows up to but not including windows ten. What do I do to get the help file back?
Wasn't there a .chm file somewhere that worked too? Or am I thinking of something else?

or do a search for "convert chm to pdf".

Sorry, Microsoft has posted WinHelp updates for Vista through 8.1 but not yet for Windows 10.

Unfortunately, it's a tremendous pain to properly reformat the existing HLP documentation to CHM format. I'll do it one of these days, but I haven't had the free time to do so just yet.
