    HLP file Workaround for WIndows 10

    I had a workaround to use the old HLP files but M$ appears to have broken the ability to use a HLP again.
    Sadly, the workaround (using XP HLP files) no longer appears to work.

    1) Anyone have a workaround that works (recently tested) ?
    2) Any simple alternative to convert the HLP file contents to a CHM format or other format?
    Sadly, this will force one to get help by running a second program instead of selecting Help from
    an old M$ program (e.g. Word, Excel, VB Classic, etc.), but at least available.

    Alternatively, this utility might be of interest - Help Explorer Viewer - CNet
