>>The program itself is a 16-bit application and has been written in Visual
Basic, the help is a Windows 95 help, i.e. 32-bit, not using any HAT except
for the Windows help compiler; the mapped topics are included in the MAP
section of the HPJ file.


You may have one additional problem. In NT your help file may not load,
since 16 bit applications run in the WOW subsystem. Is the call from your
app to winhelp.exe? If so, W95 handles the 32 bit help file through a stub
winhelp.exe that launches winhlp32.exe and will run your 32 bit help file.
However, NT cannot do this and will try to launch winhelp.exe which will not
run your 32 bit help file. Instead it gives you an error message saying you
need a newer version of help.

Did you test on NT?
