help compiler

I have VB4 standard edition- Is there a help compiler- share or free ware as this "learners' version doesnthave one. Help authoring tools are available but a compiler such as the one with the professional version  is needed.

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...

I think the complier can be found in the hc subdirectory inside the VB directory.....look for the program HC.exe

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.

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