I need the cmctl198.chm file

I and a half the MS developers in the world need the cmctl198.chm file and blasted MS does not install it with VFP 9.0 or any other version!  What sort of a lame rationale is it that MS omits this file with the ActiveXs they include???  Furthermore, where can I find all the missing *.chm files so I can put this irritating thing behind me.  Many thanx!

    It should be installed wherever you put your MSDN library.

    Many thanx, my friend.  Also, if you have any other chms that pertain to Visual FoxPro or VBasic, and it is not too much, please include.  If not that file is critical for now.  

    Thanx again...

    Yehudi, I do not use MSDN presently. I used to have a copy for the version 5.0 years ago...  I don't even know how to get it!  It certainly does not come with the VFP, that I know of...  Where can I get MSDN?  Is it another $1000 for this already overpriced software???
