Year that works fine BUT how do i do this:

WinHelp(hWnd, "test.hlp", ....); NOT writing where the location is "C:\...", is there a function like this GetExePath(); So I could write String=GetExePath+helpfile.hlp;

If I do like this WinHelp(hWnd, "test.hlp",...) Windows somtimes >>sayes that the "test.help" file is not found << because the hole path is not specifyed !! How do I solve that problem ??

Get current dir you can with function getcurdir/getcwd
