I have absolutely no experience with IIS/Frontpage so no prizes for thinking I don't know what I'm doing but I have a help file (CHM file) which I want to make available to my users via IIS 4. Can I serve this to my users ? Or does the help file have to be in a HTML format - if so how do I 'extract/decompile' the CHM file...
Thanks

To decompile a help file
Open HTML Help Workshop, and on the File menu, click Decompile.
In the Destination Folder area, enter the name of the destination folder where you want the decompiled files to be copied.
In the Compiled Help Project File area, enter the name of the .chm file you want to decompile.

if you need the HTML help Workshop, you can DL it free from Microsoft at: http://www.microsoft.com/workshop/c-frame.htm#/workshop/author/htmlhelp/default.asp

From the decompiled help file, you can then post that to the web...
