Win32.exe for hlp files on Windows 10

(1/2) > >>

I had previously posted a zip file with win32.exe in another section for use on windows 10 from info I found on tenforum.com

Since, I have noticed that the find function was not working due to a missing dll.

Here is a new version, with an updated win32.exe and the missing dll.

To use, unzip into a temp folder somewhere, and start an administrator level command prompt in the folder.  Run the winhlpfix bat file.  This will copy the required files into the system folder, and supply the correct overwrite permissions in case the defective one that comes with windows 10 is there.

My winhelp is still working on Win7-64 (and I use it a lot with the old Win32.hlp). I googled ftsrch.dll, and you get pages of crappy download sites but no explanation what it does. Of course, it's a very old file - 2003, it seems.

All I know is that when I tried to do a find inside help, it said the dll was missing.  I found it in my win7 installation and now the find works.

The way you feel about windows 10 is the same way I felt about windows NT.  I was never going to convert.  Same could be said about several items over the years. 

The only old one I'm still hanging on to is Eudora, version 7.1 from 2006, the last real version before they screwed it up (used thunderbird).  No fancy graphics, but works perfect for me :)

I felt comfortable with XP, and liked Win7 immediately. I have Windows 8.1 for other members of the family, and it's the ultimate crap. A shame for Microsoft, really. Win10 has a really scary EULA; I hope they get stopped by some institution who cares. European Commission has shown its muscles with browsers, so there is hope...

Well, with the latest win10 update, I find that win32.hlp no longer works.  Haven't figured out what the update screwed up yet. 
I use the old win32.hlp because I find the format easier to read and use and the search facilities much better.
