I wish to display a help file (*.chm) in a VC++ 6.0 MFC Application .
I've created the CHM file using a software and I just want to display the
chm file when the Help button is clicked.

It's better if u can give a sample code.

Your help is highly appreciated.


Thanks in Advance

Check the docs for ShellExecute() using the file name and the "open verb"

NULL, NULL, SW_SHOWNORMAL);

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not
necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to
land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly
overhead. -- RFC 1925
