    Question linking htmlhelp.lib

    It would appear winhelp() will soon be obsolete and so I'm looking to move on to htmlhelp() instead.

    I downloaded the MS htmlhelp SDK, along with the appropriate header and lib files. The header compiles OK but on the link I get a "fatal bad object file" error in reference to htmlhelp.lib

    I'm using a fairly old borland c++ compiler BC5 (although not much older than the currently available free version), any ideas why I'm hanging up?

    Also, any ideas for better ways to go about providing context sensitive help than htmhelp?

    BC5 probably just doesn't understand the format of the .lib file.

    You can download Visual C++ Express and try compiling with it to verify. If neither work, then the download of the SDK may have been corrupted.
