Windows Vista and mIRC - 23/09/06 06:04 AM

When you attempt to use the help file for mIRC in Windows Vista, you receive the following popup:

The Help for this program was created in the Windows Help format, which is not supported in Windows Vista.

For more information, see Windows Help Application (WinHelp32.exe) in Windows Vista on the Microsoft support website.

Yep! http://forums.mirc.com/s...true#Post167471

You can just copy the winhlp32.exe file from XP to a separate location on vista and still use hlp files, but you have to open them manually through the program. or use /run pathtowinhlp32.exeoldversion mirc.hlp

That means! Someone had better get in gear and start writing up some chm's. smile

You can also add these aliases *assuming you dropped winhlp32.exe into your mircdir

Code:
alias F1 run winhlp32.exe mirc.hlp


and to open mirc.hlp at a specified keyword, single keywords only though.
ex. "/help /alias" works fine but "/help address book" doesn't

Code:
alias help run winhlp32.exe -k $iif($1,-k $1) mirc.hlp

Would you need to change spaces into %20 or something?
(just a guess seeing as it uses html to render help pages)

Not with the winhlp32.exe, since it's being called as a specific program, and using the mIRC.hlp file, which is designed to work with that executable.

There are already is a .CHM version of the mIRC help file:

Only downside- it's made for version 6.16.

Maybe if you tried $1- it might allow more words?
