RH 2017 Trial. IS there an .exe file included to test context-sensitive help (CSH)?

In the Adobe RH 2017 sample Travel the Whirls project, there's a topic named, Context Senstive Help - How it's done. The Automated CSH Authoring section says the following:

"In Adobe RoboHelp (2015 release), CSH can be created without any involvement from the Application Developer.

In order to use this feature the application must have been developed using the C++ programming language. The process begins by clicking File > Context Sensitive Help > Open Application... From there the RoboHelp author chooses an EXE file created using C++. RoboHelp should open the application where you may establish the mappings."

I have poked around the RH 2017 folders and I haven't yet found an .exe to test the CSH with. Am I missing something or was that deliberately not included in the Trial version for 2017? Thanks.

An exe that your developers have created using C++

The trial is not limited in any way and nothing is excluded. You need to have your own exe file.
