Windows 7: Software conflict with Win7 Help File

Software conflict with Win7 Help File

I installed an old version of Corel on my win7 Dell today. I'm amazed that it installed as everyone said "old" programs would not run on win7. It sort of runs fine with the following exception - every time I access the desktop within the program, the Help file opens with the following message: The Help for this program was created in Windows Help format, which depends on a feature that isnít included in this version of Windows. However, you can download a program that will allow you to view Help created in the Windows Help format.
As a consequence, I can't do much within the program without that msg popping up and stopping any further input from me. Win7 is a 64 bit program as far as I know so I don't think downloading a .hlp file meant for a 32-bit system will cure this - which is what the download file will be. Thanks for any thoughts.

I am replying to my own msg. Apparently all I had to do was reboot and the problem went away. Yay!!

Hi - thanks for input. It seems to have stopped popping up with that msg - I may download it anyway. I guess what's confusing is it calls out the 32 bit extension and I have a 64 bit system. So that will work on 64 bit system??

If you look in the Microsoft page in the link there's 2 downloads. One for 32 bit and one for 64 bit.
