A word of caution here:

The problem of WinHelp 4 files not working with 16-bit applications on
NT has nothing to do with the file association, and changing this in the
registry is likely to lead to more problems down the road.

Quite simply, NT doesn't allow 16-bit applications to use WinHelp 4
files; the OS protects itself from 16-bit applications by running them
separately, and forces them to use WinHelp.exe (WinHelp 3.1). This is
very different from Windows 95, which allows mixing of 16-bit and 32-bit
programs.

See the WinHelp FAQ for more information.
