Josef Becker keeps the majority of the freeware and shareware Help Authoring Tools (Hat's) at http://www.helpmaster.com.  In my opinion, the best one listed there for WinHelp is Helllp!, from Ed Guy.  However, as there are a large number available from the site, you should try a few out before settling on any one of them.

For information on using WinHelp with Visual Basic programs, visit Dana Cline's site at http://www.tanstaafl-software.com.  He's a Microsoft HTMLHelp MVP, and has really developed out the VB techniques for WinHelp.  All the tutorials on his site are free, and can be read online.

For information on using HTMLHelp with Visual Basic programs, visit my HTMLHelp Center at http://www.vbexplorer.com.  (Please note that if you go to the VB-WinHelp page at Dana Cline's site and hope to find information there on HTMLHelp, he has a link refering you over to VB Explorer as well).  My site is also available from a link on the main HTMLHelp page on the Microsoft site under "More Information About HTML Help".  I have tutorials on building HTMLHelp files with the Microsoft HTMLHelp Workshop, sample code, utilities, etc.  Again, all of it is nag-free freeware, with the intent solely on getting out the information.

There are certainly articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base on using HTMLHelp with Visual Basic, but they have some problems.  We've compared notes with the Microsoft support staff, who now recognize that some rewrites are due.  Please go to the HTMLHelp Center at VB Explorer for the correct information.
