From Microsoft's help files:

To include the required HTML Help files in your application:

Include Htmlhelp.lib in your project:
In Visual C++, on the Project menu, click Settings...

In the Project Settings dialog box, click the Link tab, then select the Input category.

Under the Additional library path, specify the directory location of the Htmlhelp.lib file on your computer.
Include Htmlhelp.h in your project:
On the Project menu, click Settings... .

In the Project Settings dialog box, click the C/C++ tab, then select the Preprocessor category.

Under Additional include directories, specify the directory location of the Htmlhelp.h file on your computer.

In the Project Settings dialog box (Project menu), specify Htmlhelp.lib as the Object/libraries module in the Link tab, General category.

In your project's Stdafx.h file, insert the following line:
#include <htmlhelp.h>

That will integrate the html help system into your MFC app.  You then need to field the help messages and call up the help viewer.
