xx Getting JB 'Help' to work in e.g. Windows 10
« Thread started on: Jul 7th, 2017, 07:21am »

Found this thread, which seems to provide a solution...
https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/insider/forum/insider_wintp-insider_install/winhlp32-do-we-have-to-go-through-this-again/ddcc2f40-e4f3-407b-9672-ee8a2b08a71e

Here is the advice which I could best follow, as text, and the resulting files which work to get JustBasic help on Windows 10, as copied from the MS Community forum:-

You won't need to deal with this for much longer because Just BASIC v2.0 will be released soon, and this will install correctly on Windows 10 and other recent versions of Windows such as Windows 7 and Windows 8.

The help will be in HTML format, so it will always be readable.

If it'll be in CHM format' it will be search-able.

Q: "And if I took your codes and compile them, and sell them for a profit"?
A: Go ahead. I had my share of good then I coded it for fun, if you can make better use of it - please do.
(enjoying JB 1.01 on WinXP, netbook and desktop)
