MicroSotft discontinued the Help Viewer with Vista. It is still available as a download, but I am having problems installing that, so while I try to solve them I thought that I woudl ask if anyone knows of an alternative .HLP viewer .....

I wonder if one of the HLP-to-RTF converters could be helpful to you? Once converted to RTF, you should be able to read it in well-known word processors such as OpenOffice Writer, Microsoft Word, WordPerfect, etc. (be careful though, because some of this stuff stinks of being SpyWare!): – Randolf Richardson Jul 3 '11 at 7:12
What install problems are you having with the old help viewer? – Moab Jul 3 '11 at 16:22

You could try the Help Explorer Viewer. It is from the year 2007 and discontinued by the developer but still available to download via the link.

PS: If the answer comes to late for you, it might help someone else.

Works but appears to be limited in how many topics it can list (I tried it with old winapi reference, it only got halfway) – Alf P. Steinbach Dec 9 '14 at 7:26
