I have tried to download the .zipfile from this thread, but that does not work. The installprogram in the zipfile can't take ownership of winhlp32.exe (run as administrator), and I can't rename winhlp32.exe, not even as "administrator". When rightclicking on the file and selecting properties, the ONLY way to allow renaming or deleting this file is by "thrustedinstaller". The "administrator" has only reading rights on this file.
How do I do that?
I have even tried to boot from another harddrive (win 7 RC1), and then tried to rename it in build 7264, but no luck.

btw, I'm running build 7264 64bits, and I don't have Vista at all, so downloading is my only option.
Merge this regfile - then rt click the winhlp32.exe in the windows folder and Take ownership - you should be able to rename it then.

Seem to remember I needed to do that on some builds - you may need to do the same to the winhlp32.exe.mui in the windows\en-us folder.
I have downloaded your .reg-file, and tomorrow (well, later today) I will try it. Here it is 5 a.m. so I'll have to turn off now, and get 1 hour sleep before going to work

Thank you very much. This .regfile did the trick . After merging this, and run a cmd as "administrator", and in there run install.cmd, it worked just fine. +rep
