TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Did you try plopping a HLP onto a XP machine and
WinHelp is WinHelp no matter what HAT you use to
author it (custom dlls aside). WinHelp will run on any
Windows OS that was developed to accommodate WinHelp
(which is Windows 3.1 through XP, though for Win3.1
you'll need to deploy 16bit help, but that should be a
non issue these days).
So, try grabbing any ol' HLP file you have lying
around and plopping it onto a XP box and opening it,
and see what it looks like.
And, for your screen caps, just take them from a XP
box and save them from there.
