ASBool AVAppOpenHelpFile(const char* fileName, ASBool doSearch)

Opens a specified help file from the default installation help directory. If the help file is not found, it optionally opens a dialog box asking if the user wants to search for the help file.

Runs this code from the Acrobat JavaScript console window:

app.getPath("app","help")

On my system it returns this path

/C/Program Files (x86)/Adobe/Acrobat DC/Acrobat/

At one time Acrobat had a handy help handler, I used it for a while. It was obsolete many versions before XI. If this API works at all, it will just do a normal document open. Avoid.
