I'm looking for up-to-date help file(s) for the Win32 Programmer's Reference, particularly one that has WinInet documentation.  Are there any freely available for download (other than MSDN's Platform SDK)?

I think you are asking about the Microsoft MSDN Library, which is DIFFERENT than the help that comes with the SDK.

You can get FREE access to the MSDN library on the web at:

http://msdn.microsoft.com

If you want local access on CD or DVD, you must purchase the MSDN Library subscription:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/subscriptions/prodinfo/pricing.asp#lib

There is NO OTHER SOURCE for this information.

There are some sites that have these single, largish (~20 MB) help files that have all the functions, messages, etc., such as

ftp://ftp.cs.virginia.edu/pub/lcc-win32/win32hlp.exe
http://www.inprise.com/devsupport/borlandcpp/patches/BC52HLP1.ZIP

I have "win32.hlp" for Win32 API and "winsock.hlp" for Socket API.  Is there one for WinInet API?
