What works

The application starts and successfully opens small .hlp files and converts and saves them successfully as the following formats: HTML (single file), HTML (web site)


What does not

Upon trying to open a rather large .hlp file, like the 24 MB Windows 32-bit API docs ( ) the application dies with wine reporting the following error: "err:clipping:CLIPPING_UpdateGCRegion hVisRgn is zero. Please report this."

Trying to save a small .hlp file as PDF causes an access violation, and creates an invalid PDF file.

An RTF file was successfully created from a small .hlp file, but the resulting RTF file was unreadable in AbiWord 2.4.5, and only partially legible in OpenOffice 2.1.0.

Trying to save a small .hlp file in Word 97/2003, Word 6.0/95, or WordPerfect 5.0 formats resulted in an error: "Sorry, MS Office converters not installed yet."

Trying to save a small .hlp file in .CHM format results in no file being generated and wine reports:  "fixme:itss:ITStorageImpl_SetControlData 0x167408" and "HHC5010: Error: Cannot open "c:\Program Files\ABC Amber HLP Converter\asm\x86eas.chm". Compilation stopped" (Where "x86eas" was the name of the .hlp file I was trying to convert)


What was not tested
