I think you can use the html help ActiveX control (Hhctrl.ocx) like any other activex:

All the above topics talk about creating new projects for integrating the help file.
I already have a MFC app, but now we also want to integrate a chm file developed outside my app to be linked with my app.
Hope this calrifies.
