I've successfully used RHs Bughunter version 4.01 which is included in the
RH8 Office Tools set. I enter the name of the HLP file and then pass map
(context-sensitive) ID numbers and the appropriate context-sensitive (or not
depending on if it's incorrectly assigned or not) topic is displayed.
but that's my .02.

Subject: RE: Context ID Utility
You used to be able to do this by adding TRACEHELP=Y to the [GENERAL]
section of your app's .ini file. The way it works...you highlight the field,
press F1, and a dialog box pops up that contains a bunch of info. Part of
the dialog box is the context ID.
Now that apps aren't using .ini files any more, I haven't heard of anything
comparable. If you find out, let me know, too. I'd love to get that info...
