What works

hhc.exe compiles WinOmega help files successfully after applying the following workaround for bug 7517:

  1. Extract itircl.dll and itss.dll
    cabextract -F hhupd.exe htmlhelp.exe
    cabextract -F itircl.dll hhupd.exe
    cabextract -F itss.dll hhupd.exe
  2. Copy them to system32 (or syswow64 depending on your WINEARCH)
    cp -a itircl.dll itss.dll ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/
  3. Run winecfg and set both DLLs to "native"
  4. Register them:
    wine regsvr32 itircl.dll
    wine regsvr32 itss.dll

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

To install, simply change the windows version emulated to winxp using winecfg.


Or use the following script by Aziz Köksal ( September 8th 2008)
Script for automatic installation located here: dil.googlecode.com/svn/misc/install_hhw.sh

Running the GUI

Use winetricks to grab MFC40.DLL

winetricks mfc40

To compile CHMs
Wine's ITSS.dll does not support CHM creation, so copy it from your Windows partition.
