I'm not sure what the problem is. A few workarounds, though, for what I think
the problem is (you're trying to look at the Help topic and the dialog box at
the same time, right?):

Set the Help as Always on Top. Do this by going to a Help topic, selecting
Options, then Keep Help on Top, then On Top. This way it'll hover in the
foreground, even when you click the program.

You say the Help button doesn't work. Make sure it's calling the correct
string. If it's totally wrong (like, wrong API call, wrong Help file, wrong
planet) make the programmer fix it so you can test it! If it's just the
string, fix it yourself and recompile.

I hope I've been helpful. If I'm way off base, feel free to contact me off
list to explain the situation.
