What do I have to look for (dll's / registry entries?) to find out if the current operating system is capable of running HTML (chm) help files?.

check for a registry key for chm.file

and under that you should find

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\chm.file\shell\open\command with a value of "C:\WINDOWS\hh.exe" %1
