I want to have help in my project and I have not selected the "Context Sensitive Help" in it when I started it. How do I invoke it in now?

You know, my brain is too small to remember detail like this, especially detail that changes between MFC versions.

But teach a man to fish.... Use Create New Project in VC to create two skeleton projects, one with context sensitive help, and one without.  Diff the files to see what you have to do.

There seems to be a lot of differance in it, like there is a help folder with a bunch of files etc and I assume these are linked somehow to the main project. So I just wanted to know if there is an automatic way to add the context sensitve help which would create these files and link them.

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

The answer to your supplimentary question is 'no'.  The only way to get what you want is to follow my initial advice.  Copy the new subdir into your actual project, and perform the edits you see in your diffs.  VC5 is not clever enough to retrospectively jerk around your sources with the options available at project creation time.

I agree with warmacat.  You need to just add the differences you have found between the two skeleton projects.  It shouldn't be that tough!
