I associated it using the "open with" from the context menu.

Did you right click on a .hlp file and select "Open With"?
Open with box comes up.
Then click other programs arrow (the tiny down arrow on the right.)
Browse button
Browse to Win32hlp.exe

Yep, can't make the association. Do you have the RC or Beta? Perhaps it worked in the beta?

Can you get to the Open With on right clicking a hlp file?

You get the open with, but cannot add to it. Not on 7100 anyway.

That's curious - it definitely won't allow any change to the Open With menu for .hlp on my 7100 x64.

I can browse to the same winhlp32.exe that was added succesfuly to the Send To menu.

However, it is not added to to the Open With, it remains unchanged.

32bit here.
No mouse drivers for 64 so I won't be installing. Mouse moves too slow.

Winhlp32.exe
When I try to view the helpfile from older programs, I only get to this website, I cannot open Help files that require the Windows Help (WinHlp32.exe) program but I can't get it to load winhlp32.exe or winhlp64.exe. How do I get the older Windows help to work in Windows 7?
