Windows .hlp files

As you probably understand I want to read the windows .hlp files...
I have tryed a program named hlp2rtflx but it writes a rtf file that makes Kwrite crash( I atleas think so coz it closes )
I have tryed some other ones but they didnt even install

You could try installing Wine and running the files through wine (wine winhlp32.exe). Or try ArchMage or xchm or follow this link.

I don't know if any of them work, or if they do how well. You try following my search to see if any of the others in Google are of any use to you.

The rtf file can be viewed in Openoffice.
