    There is also a link to the official file from MS (800KB).
    Following my instructions you'll have also Guide and Search fully working in any language.

    I'm not sure if this will work for all hlp files and if it does, you will have to manually find the hlp file, but I was able to open a hlp file by dragging and dropping it over winhlp32.exe. Or you could do what the other guy said to do, which is essentially taking ownership of the fake winhlp32.exe in the Windows folder and replacing it with the one from Windows XP.
    Thanks - works a treat - dropped the hlp file on the exe and she opened.

    Ok guys, Windows 10 x64 ITA here...
    The archive for Windows 8 RTM (just 898KB) available from Download Windows Help program (WinHlp32.exe) for Windows 8 from Official Microsoft Download Center seem to contain all languages files, for those interested to full install 'WinHlp32.exe' + 'WinHlp32.exe.mui' (= help file/localization catalog)...
    Enjoy!
    Grazie (thank you) hexaae, I'll try your procedure asap

    here's a zip file i made
    containing the winhlp32.exe from windows XP
    i've been using for a year
    along with instructions on how to replace it...

    it works for me even on x64...
    winhlp32.zip

    edit: this works on windows 8 and 10
    even though the help file doesn't say so...
    and probably 7 too though i haven't tried it...

    Easy solution:
    copy extracted files (see here) and rename as:
    ...\winhlp32_legacy.exe
    ...\it-IT\winhlp32_legacy.exe.mui

    Somewhere else and assign .hlp files to this. Remember that .mui must be in a subdir with your language initials (it-IT, en-US, etc.)

    I'm on the Windows 10 fast ring for new builds and this was working but a recent build put the original file back. I followed the same procedure but now opening any help simply returns an error (9009) so I'm wondering if this is no longer viable.
    Edit: I switched to the XP version and that works.

    9009 error = for the version of winhlp32.exe you are using also the .mui file is required for localization, help guide, and search function.
    Follow my guide at post #46.

    Thanks to whomever posted a fix for the help files. I replaced the existing Win-10 WinHlp32.exe with the XP version and my Visual Basic Pro 5.0 help works!!!! Thanks loads (maybe from post #46 or later).
