I am looking for a WCX Writer’s Reference.CHM instead of a .HLP file

Post by *dantesoft » 2018-09-12, 19:18 UTC

Would it be possible to obtain the `WCX Writer’s Reference` document in CHM or even better HTML format, instead of HLP (which can’t be easily opened on Windows 10) ?

Until then, this version: http://madsenworld.dk/tcmd/winhlp32.zip of winhlp32.exe can open .hlp files - also under Windows 10

... the `WCX Writer’s Reference` document ...
Just for others:
`WCX Writer’s Reference` document ==> https://www.ghisler.com/plugins.htm >> Packer extensions (plugins) >> "WCX Plugin Guide" download.

Also see:
Converting plugins to 64-bit >> https://ghisler.ch/board/viewtopic.php?p=226796#p226796



May this help some coming along reader in the future.

Over the last few days, I had some spare time to convert all plugin help files to HTML help (CHM).

You can download them from the plugin page now, or directly from here:
http://ghisler.fileburst.com/plugins/wcx_ref2.21se_chm.zip
http://ghisler.fileburst.com/fsplugins/fspluginhelp2.1se_chm.zip
http://ghisler.fileburst.com/lsplugins/listplughelp2.1_chm.zip
http://ghisler.fileburst.com/content/contentpluginhelp210se_chm.zip

Please let me know if you encounter any problems with them! Make sure to unzip them with Total Commander, not the Explorer, otherwise they may not work due to Windows security settings.

Looks nice, thank you:)
BTW I've noticed the following:
10. You should set the following options:
C++ - Code generation - runtime library: Multi-threaded-Debug (/Mtd) <- not multithreaded debug dll !
Release builds should use rather Multi-threaded (/Mt) than Multi-threaded-Debug (/Mtd) mode.

You are of course right - this is for the debug phase. The main point is that the user doesn't use "multithreaded debug dll" or "multithreaded dll" because they think that this is needed to create a dll - it is NOT. The "dll" in this option is for having the C library in an external dll, which would have to be installed separately (MSVC*.DLL).

http://ghisler.fileburst.com/content/contentpluginhelp210se_chm.zip mentions version 2.20 in the changelog, but filename still points to 210.

This is the Danish version of winhlp32.exe. Can you please update to the English version for your language file addons (e.g., wcmd_win81x86_eng.zip). Thanks.

On Win10 you can use the archive made by Komeil Bahmanpour which at least contains the EXE. ...
