Anyone know the complete command line syntax for winhlp32.exe.  I can do this:
winhlp32.exe c:\test.hlp, to invoke the help but I want to go to a specific context/help id using command line syntax.

I couldn't find it on the microsoft site, either.  
-i tried winhlp32.exe /? - no go.
-i tried some switches - no go

help.

Sorry, don't know the COMPLETE syntax (I think it used to be buried deep in the Knowledge Base but I can't find it now.)

From memory, try
 "winhlp32 filename -k keyword"
 "winhlp32 filename -t topic"
 "winhlp32 filename -i idnumber"

A search on the Microsoft web site under "winhelp" and "command line" (NOT "winhlp32"!) may bring the info to light.

HTH,

I did find the answer at the knowlegde base when searching for winhelp and command line.

The correct syntax is:
winhlp32.exe -N{id} {help filename}
