I have done an example in C/C++ including an WinHelp file with help context 10 which will be requested in the example. It will be elementary to convert to asm but I will not do it because am very lazy these days.

Code: [Select]


#include "windows.h"
LRESULT CALLBACK WndProc(HWND hwnd, UINT message, WPARAM wparam, LPARAM lparam);

int APIENTRY wWinMain(_In_ HINSTANCE hInstance,
_In_opt_ HINSTANCE hPrevInstance,
_In_ LPWSTR    lpCmdLine,
_In_ int       nCmdShow)
{
WNDCLASS windowClass = { 0 };
windowClass.hbrBackground = (HBRUSH)GetStockObject(WHITE_BRUSH);
windowClass.hCursor = LoadCursor(NULL, IDC_ARROW);
windowClass.hInstance = NULL;
windowClass.lpfnWndProc = WndProc;
windowClass.lpszClassName = L"Window in Console Application";
windowClass.style = CS_HREDRAW | CS_VREDRAW;
if (!RegisterClass(&windowClass))
MessageBox(NULL, L"Error registering class", L"Error", MB_OK);
HWND windowHandle = CreateWindow(L"Window in Console Application",
NULL,
WS_POPUP,
0,
0,
GetSystemMetrics(SM_CXSCREEN),
GetSystemMetrics(SM_CYSCREEN),
NULL,
NULL,
NULL,
NULL);

MessageBox(windowHandle, L"Help me", L"Hello HELP", MB_HELP);
MSG messages;
while (GetMessage(&messages, NULL, 0, 0) > 0)
{
TranslateMessage(&messages);
DispatchMessage(&messages);
}

return messages.wParam;
}

LRESULT CALLBACK WndProc(HWND hwnd, UINT message, WPARAM wparam, LPARAM lparam)
{
switch (message)
{
case WM_HELP:
WinHelp(0, L"MyHelp.hlp", HELP_CONTEXT, 10);
break;
case WM_DESTROY:
PostQuitMessage(0);
break;
default:
return DefWindowProc(hwnd, message, wparam, lparam);
}
return 0;
}

here it's a version from the c one. It's a console application. Unfortunately, like all the others old .hlp files i can only see the content with the help of a program that i donwloaded from this forum (don't remember where). This program just open the helpless windows 8.1 help which dosn't help me at all... :icon_exclaim:

In this thread there is a link to a google drive where there is winhlp32-windows-7-10-x86-64.zip

Help files downloaded from the internet will need to be unblocked - right click/properties/Unblock or whatever equivalent they invented.

mov r8d,offset hlpfile ?

Ah, you build with /LARGEADDRESSAWARE:NO  :(
