I created a dialog based application with support for RTF help and I want to remove this help option until I have more time to work on the actual help files.  How can I change the project setup so it doesn't compile the help stuff or generate any of the help files?

Thanks.

I know what you're talking about.  Those help compilations are brutal.

Go to your file view at the same location as your resources.  Remove the 'file.hpj' by hitting the delete button.

You should be golden.

What does "Go to you file view at the same location as your resources." mean??  Are talking about the workspace viewer off to the left side of Visual Studio?

Didn't work, the only files in the "Help Files" directory included in the project are "AfxDlg.rtf" and "file.cnt" and the thing still tries to compile the help stuff every time I rebuild.  How can I get it completely out to where it won't even try to build the help files?

Don't look in the "Help Files" directory. It will be in the "Source Files" at the top.
