VB 6.0 help files?

Is there anywhere that I can download the VB 6.0 help file?  It is asking for my MSDN CD but I don't have it here and won't for a few weeks.  Is there somewhere it can be downloaded?  I had my 5.0 but uninstalled it for 6.0 :(

The Help for VB6 is not one file it a LOT of *.chi files (compiled html) That is why it is on a cd now. About 600m worth.

Ok, so can the VB 5.0 be found anywhere?

No.  In both 5 and 6, the help files are extremely large.  If you are looking for help on specific controls such as the common controls (toolbar, status bar, etc.) got to the following directory of you VB6 CD:

\common\help

in that directory of your CD, you can find various .hlp and .chm files.  These are your help files.  But like I said, these are help files only for the non-standard controls (common controls, MAPI controls, sys info control, etc.)  If you need stuff like example programs and in depth explanation of things, you will have to wait for your MSDN cd.

No.  The help files that i mentioned above in the \common\help directory of your CD only contains help for SOME of the CONTROLS.  That means that if you want help on any of the functions like msgbox, you have to wait for your MSDN cd.
