Our devs are asking if they can delete helpmap.ocx and HHActiveX.dll now that we're no longer using chm helps (We've switched to an HTML5 output). We've been installing those files with our product.

Do we need these files with HTML5 output, or can we delete them from our install software?

I am pretty sure that HHActiveX.dll is CHM only and that seems to be supported by the online help if you search that filename. It only appears in topics related to Microsoft HTML Help.

The other filename gets results but nothing I could see at a glance that helps.

I suggest you contact Adobe Support on this one unless anyone else can chip in.

Thanks Peter. For now until we know for sure, we'll continue to install it.
