what the hell for - the win32 api is just a list for declerations and constants
every api viewer explains on every function and declare that is on win32

i dont think you need more - the winapi viewer is destributed with every developer program from microsoft and borland - if you have vb4 or vb5 - its on your menu

No, web_crusher, i don't need Win32API.txt, i need Win32API.HLP file. I need help file where i would find every API function, explanation of what it is for, explanation of parameters it takes etc. I hope you know where to get it.

I'm not sure this is generally available. If you have the MSDN CD-ROM, the info is all there.
Have you tried the MSDN web site?
I think it is msdn.microsoft.com!

Just a comment... it IS out there somewhere! I got it, but I don't remember where from.
I know this didn't help you a bit, but just don't stop looking.

I know what you feel you are up against!

I use Dan Appleman's 'Visual Basic 5.0 Guide to the Win32 API' and can find most of what I want.

I know there are a number of books where i can find everything about API, but i need it for free, because i am sure it is somewhere, only don't know where.
I saw some guy wrote he's got that file, but i didn't ask him then, and i don't remember his name.

The problem is that I don't have VC++.  And i am not going to buy the whole thing just for one help file.

Snoffy, it is ok that they are big. This is good because they may be more comprehensive then others. If you say where you got them, i will be pleased with the answer.

It sure is comprehensive, alright! But I really can't remember where I got it... but try searching for the file. That's all I can think of...

I searched for it in Altavista and Yahoo. I searched for the word "Win32API". It did find something, but it was not the actual file. By the way, there was the site among the search results, that asked the same question as i have, but when i tried to get there, it says "File not found".

Try some FTP search instead! If you don't know where to find one, just search altavista for 'ftp search'

  Normal we get win32 API information from win32 SDK or C/C++ compiler. Since help file in VC++ all convert into HTML format, you should search for it at Borland(Inprise). IMHO, MSDN is a better reference.

   Go to ftp://ftp.borland.com/pub/bcppbuilder/techpubs/ and download bcbhlp01.zip(5,661,937). It's the help file for C++ Builder and it contain win32.hlp.

   Hope this help. :)
