What do I need in my VB5 code to invoke a help file, say "xyz.hlp"?
(This file is identified as "Microsoft Windows Help", prepared with a help file editor which failed to survive the migration to my present computer.)
Both "ShowHelp" and "WinHelp", in VB5, get me a message "Keyword Not Found".
Can you tell me more about that?
I found WinHelp.exe in my Windows folders, but it says it's unable to open my ".hlp" file.
Meanwhile, when I simply click on that .hlp file it opens and functions with no problem.
I just need for my VB5 program to be able to open it so easily.
I searched online for the term "CommonDialog" and found advice on how to bring it into the Tool Kit, but for me that process was interrupted by a message "Permission Denied". Explanation: I don't have access to the Registry. What now?
Thank you, OnErrOr.
With your help I have found my way to a procedure that activates the Help file. Your suggestion to run VB5 "as administrator" was the key; well, one key. When I run as administrator, VB5 is unable to find the forms and the thousands of lines of code that I have written. It seems that I will have to open VB5 as administrator with a blank slate and copy the program, piece by piece, onto it.
