hi,

what tools are good for creating windows help files?  Right now I'm trying Microsoft Help Workshop, but isn't it a bit old?

Any suggestions welcome.

it may be old, but it works well. i usually use HTML Help Workshop. You can have your help files in .chm format.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

HTML help workshop is more flexible and it allows you to code your pages in html. A lot better looking than the former.
