Help Explorer Viewer 3.0
Help Explorer Viewer - Help Explorer Viewer is a help viewer for both Windows and Linux that gives you a way to use help files in Windows' WinHelp, MS HTML Help 1.x and MS Help 2.0 formats with your applications, no matter under which operating system - Windows or Linux - your applications are deployed. Since the Windows Vista has optional support of WinHelp files, Help Explorer Viewer comes in handy.
There is no more need to devise a new help format for Linux and build a viewer for it. Just prepare your Linux documentation in any of the generally adopted Windows help formats, distribute Help Explorer Viewer with your application and your users will be able to read the documentation under Linux as if they are reading it under Windows. The HTML engine that is built in Help Explorer Viewer renders topics retaining their original format.
A full range of the WinHelp API including the macro engine, popup windows, quick links, dynamic HTML and other features will be at your disposal as a software developer. You will also get a capability to view help collections to which your HTML Help 2 files are integrated.
Help Explorer Viewer can be activated from your applications using the API, which enables context sensitive help.
Help Explorer Viewer utilizes all of the search mechanisms that are available in Windows help systems. The table of contents, which is a hierarchy of topics in the order how the help author placed them. The index, which is a list of keywords that the help author associated with certain topics. And a common "key phrase" search, which is based on consequent scanning of all topics.
You can customize the user interface of Help Explorer Viewer as your needs dictate: you can create and hide windows, configure the toolbar and the main menu and dynamically redirect demonstrations of pages.
So, by using Help Explorer Viewer you will be able to provide your applications with a help system that is easy to use and effectively assists users in mastering your applications.

Works great. Can now open *.cmd files even though .cmd is still associated with Chem Draw on this computer.

Unable to download because of getting shunted to another window which seems irrelevant

I downloaded help explorer as I'm testing Windows 7, which will NOT allow the use of older help files... I was hoping help explorer would. It does let me see some of the help files but not quite the same as they are in Windows xp. I'm still looking for an aftermarket viewer that will simply run old help files on Windows 7

I think what happened is I selected "review", then discovered I had to register (?) before I could download, and did not want to register.

I did not actually review the product - I thought I was going to need it but found my problem with viewing CHM files was a security issue in XP which I have resolved.

I may have been barking up the wrong tree
I was trying to solve multiple problems and I looked this over for a solution.

I didn`t like it at all
The most important part - the search engine is totally not what is expected. In Windows native CHM viewer the search engine gives good result while in Help Explorer Viewer the results are very different and very bad(somewhat strange).

Not for most users
Decent software, but for me it was problematic to interprete. I'd ask for some guideline for dummies (yes yes, 95% are dummies, including me).

okay so i won't use capitals at all then. i am intrigued as to the reason why vista users are forced by micro$oft to download a 3rd party product when the compiled html viewer was always part of their products. since when did micro$oft stop doing this? anyhow, after

Decent alternative to Windows Help
My Windows Help got corrupted, so this works well. The only thing I'm disappointed about is that it doesn't associate itself with chm files.

IT is very easy to use and it does the job. but the interface should be newer. Should have it own look what doesnt look like win xp

Help Explorer Viewer
I used that S/W for standalone viewing help files only available from inside the related application.

Good tool, but not open source software
Your tool is good, but it isn't an open source software =>

Program is fine
I found Help explorer in my search for something that can read hxS and hlp files, basically for reading microsoft directX sdk and other sdks. I found that it has some problems with (not) showing the table of contents and index. I compared by opening hlp files and the display is very different.
