HLP to CHM Help converter
Is there such a thing? I googled and couldn't find anything. I have a large application with help in the old HLP format and it would be nice if I could view it in HTML help instead. It would be even better if it could convert to the new .net help format.
I think Help & Manual can, and export to pdf and others, too.
+1 for Help & Manual. Very, very nice piece of software.
And another vote for Help & Manual. Now if only they could make editing tables easier.
I downloaded it because it said it was "fully functional" for 14 days, but of course it only decompiles 100 topics! I HATE when they don't fully disclose the limitations...
For a one-time conversion, try to decompile it with Helpdeco and convert the HLP sources into HTML Help with the MS help compiler. Helpdeco is freeware and can be found on www.helpmaster.com
You can convert it with "Robo help".
