Forgive me if I sound naive, but this identical situation happened to me earlier this year. My developer INSISTED he could not use a .chm and needed an .hlp file.
However, after my husband researched the situation (he's a sw developer too) he found out that you can implement a .chm in any 32-bit application.

> Soooo, is there anyway to convert a .chm help file back down to .hlp? If no, is there an easy way to create a .hlp file using the htm files or converting them to rtf?
