I just did this, actually, and I'm afraid old HLP files look, well, just
like plain ol' HLP files on Windows XP.

If you'll forgive my impertinence here...what does it matter what the
help system looks like? Particularly assuming these folks are going to
be operating a machine in a factory or laboratory context (that's a big
assumption on my part), are they going to care whether it's got fancy
buttons? Thanks. DB.

Did you try plopping a HLP onto a XP machine and
opening it?

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.
