The HTML Help Compiler (hhc) works fine (after mingling with some DLLs)
The HTML Help Workshop (hhw) works but you have to get yourself a mfc40.dll from somewhere.
What does not
I remeber encountering a minor glitch somewhere in the Workshop but I don't exactly recall what - so I'll give just a silver rating.
What was not tested
I didn't do extensive tests on the Workshop.
In order to install the HTML Help Workshop properly, the following steps should be taken (tried with a fresh Wine 0.9.43 installation): 1) Download the HTML Help Workshop and save it as htmlhelp.exe 2) The Installer comes with the HTML Help Update. You need the two DLL files "itss.dll" and "itircl.dll" from that package. Extract and copy them using the following commands: cabextract -d htmlhelp htmlhelp.exe cabextract -d hhupd htmlhelp/hhupd.exe cp hhupd/it*.dll ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32 3) Install the Workshop: wine htmlhelp (It will install itself to C:\Program Files\HTML Help Workshop, it is not possible to choose another path). 4) Make sure the itss.dll and itircl.dll are registered: cd ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32 wine regsvr32 itss.dll wine regsvr32 itircl.dll 5) Make sure the native version of itss.dll is used. Start winecfg, go to Libraries, type "itss" into the "New override for library" field and use the "Add" button. Make sure the new entry to the list reads "itss (native,builtin)". 6) (not needed if you just want to use the compiler) Grab yourself a copy of mfc40.dll and put it into the directory of the HTML Help Workshop.
