In order to implement context-sensitive help in C++ platform, RoboHelp Help states that the developer must include 2 files: wininet.lib and hhctrl.lib. The wininet.lib file was easy to find; it is installed with Windows. The hhctrl.lib file is supposed to be in the RoboHelp installation folder but isn't there.

Does anyone know where I can find the hhctrl.lib file? Can it be downloaded? Does it come in the Installation disk for RoboHelp? I am using RoboHelp 6.

Hi, Judy,

I think the RoboHelp Help is (seriously) out of date. Microsoft used to ship hhctrl.lib with the earliest versions of its development tool, HTML Help Workshop, but did away with it with HTML Help 1.2. That was released in 1998.

C++ developers gain access to the HTML Help API by linking to the Htmlhelp.lib file and including the Htmlhelp.h file in their programs. See:
