HTML Help Workshop on Windows 10?


Has anyone successfully used MS HTML Help Workshop on Windows 10?

I have run into a problem when I try to compile a package which has not caused any trouble on Window 7 for several years.

On Windows 10, the processing apparently never terminates, although it uses only less than 1% CPU after the first 10-15 minutes. I have to kill the processing. A CHM file is produced, but it can't be opened. The file is twice the traditional size: 1,2GB instead of ~600MB.


No problems so far with HH on Windows 10. The file size should be nearly the same as compiled on Windows 7.

I'm assuming your old project has been compiled without any problems under Windows 7. And I think you don't have further tools like e.g. RoboHelp in use and compile it the man's way using Microsoft HTML Help Workshop.

I'd recommend using MJ's Help Diagnostics Version It's a small utility that reports if all the HTML Help runtime
