Windows 7: Can one get VBA help on host when Access on XP mode guest?

Can one get VBA help on host when Access on XP mode guest?

I'm building an application for a client who only has ACC2003. So I'm running ACC2000 in XP Mode on my Win7 Pro box using the integration features to run the application. My brain, however, has developed leaks and I frequently need to cruise VBA help for syntax reminders and such. If I click on help while in the VBA IDE all I get is a shrunken IDE window and a goes-nowhere icon on the taskbar. I'm looking for a way to see VBA help - if not through XP Mode then maybe downloadable?
Any clues on how this might be done?

Doh! What I hadn't done, and apparently needed to do, was launch help in the IDE at least once when in XP mode. Help is now available. Learn something new every day.
