Windows Help not running under Vista or WIN-7

My VB-6 Programs do run under Vista and WIN-7 after I have allowed access to
those directories, where my program is situated.
All my programs have helpfiles which are connected to to the program via a
module called ContxtID.BAS in which the ID's for every help page is stated in
order to find the correct helpfile when F-1 key is being pushed.

Under Vista or WIN-7 when pressing the F-1-key a warnig pops up, that this
helpfile is no longer supported under this operating system.
I am asked to download a certain program from microsoft, but withou further
advices, where I find this exe-file.
After having talked to Microsoft support I found that file withn the name :
winCHMfileRestore!v10.exe
This could only be started under admin conditions which I did.
However after having run this exe, the failure after F-1-key within my
program remeined.
What can I do, to get this helpfile running.
By the way the same failure-warning I also receive, when I try to start the
HELP-file "POSPLUS.HLP" (in my case named like that), which obviously looks
like a very normal microsoft helpfile.
Urgently help requested and thankyou in advance.

Frage ruhig auf Deutsch stellen kannst und solltest.

Ich nehme an, daß alle Deine Dateien HLP-Dateien sind?
Von MS Windows Vista an wurde das diese Art von Hilfedateien unterstützende
Programm WINHELP.EXE bzw. WINHLP32.EXE entfernt, da es angeblich nicht auf
einen modernen Sicherheitsanforderungen entsprechenden Stand gebracht
werden konnte - was natürlich barer Unsinn ist.
Immerhin ist MS so 'gütig', dieses Programm (WinHlp32.exe) noch weiterhin
zum Download anzubieten:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...D3F5-4365-
8070-334CD175D4BB&displaylang=en
(Link in einer Zeile)

Allerdings mußt Du beachten, daß dieser Download
1. eine Gültigkeitsüberprüfung Deines OS erfordert und
2. nur für den eigenen Gebrauch möglich ist; die Datei darf nicht
weiterverteilt werden!

Deswegen solltest Du bei Deinen Anwendungen, die verteilt werden sollen,
die HLP-Dateien durch CHM-Dateien ('HTML-Hilfe') ersetzen. Alle Werkzeuge,
die in der Regel dafür erforderlich sind, findest Du auf Deinen VB-CDs.
