Hello,
In 32bit application iam using *.chm files for application help. Its normally work for many years. Now in 64bit application there is problem with help. There is one application where I rebuild to 64 bits and press F1 system shows new windows help (different from standard chm browser). This window is without any content (probably chm file is incompatible with new Windows help). The second application doesn’t show anything after F1 press (FileHelp parameter and helpcontext parameters are set in form too).
So how can I show chm help in 64bit application?
Can I use chm file or different help type?
VSM

And one additional question:
Is it possible use same help format like Embarcadero IDE? What is this format? How can i create this? Is it supporting in 64bit application? Is thete any examples?

I found this info about using help in XE: http://codeverge.com/embarcadero.cppbuilder.native/htmlhelp-linker-error-in-64-bit/1080663.
I tested it and it seems to work include 64bit application.
Now 32bit and 64bit application help are the same.
