Last week someone asked a question about how big a Windows help file could be.
At a seminar this weekend the presenter said he'd seen them as big as 50MB.
(the file had a lot of graphics.) He was not aware of any specific limits. The
.hlp file on my PC here at work is 1.8 MB (Winword). I wouldn't be surprised if
files in the 2 -3 MB range are common for the big database, graphics, and
spreadsheet programs.
