When Windowes doesnt work with older help files such as in Lotus

Solution

Here is a solution (thanks to Komeil Bahmanpour):

Go to his site:

http://www.komeil.com/blog/windows-help-program-winhelp-winhlp32-exe

Download winhlp32-windows-7-x86-x64-komeil.cab:

http://www.komeil.com/download/1230

I needed a solution in order to get help working for Delphi Studio Architect on Windows 10.
Komeil's install.cmd file didn't work as is (its pre Win10) so I simply modified it.
Unpack the download (Install.cmd, winhlp32.exe, winhlp32.exe.mui) to a new directory. Edit the install.cmd and add the following two lines to the 'settings' section:

set WindowsVersion=7
goto :BypassVersionError

(yes, 'WindowsVersion=7' is correct.) Save the file and execute as administrator.
All should go without error. Delphi help, and every other help file I've tried, now works exactly as it should!
