HC.exe did not come with my VB4 and this file is not available in microsoft's VB directory- at least I couldn't find it- may now be with advent of VB5. If another directory has it - which one.

I do not know of any and you are correct that HC.EXE is only installed when you choose it and ONLY in the Professional and Enterprise Editions of VB.

I would suggest either upgrading to the Professional or Enterprise Editions or do a quick search on the WEB to see if there is a shareware/freeware one available but I am only aware of the microsoft one.

It does also come with Visual C/C++ 1.52 and above.  So if you have Visual C/C++ from Microsoft you can look in the BIN directory for HCxx.EXE where xx is a version number...

This answer is much more satisfactory even though it confirms what I feared. It may become available now that VB5 is out
