NüHelp: Word/HTML to CHM converter

*New version 2017.12.21* – use the contact page on opulos.com or sourceforge to report any issues.

NüHelp converts Microsoft Word documents and HTML files to a CHM file. It’s easy to use for beginners and has lots of options for advanced users.

1) Word 2003, 2007, 2010 or 2013.
2) HTML Help Workshop (included in zip file)
3) .Net 3.5 Client Profile (already on most computers)

*** Win7/8 users: After downloading the file, you will have to right click on the zip file, click properties, and then click the unblock button before unzipping. Otherwise the two chm help files in the zip file will either appear blank or say webpage not found.

Tip: Use NuZip to zip CHM files to prevent gmail from rejecting the attachment: http://sourceforge.net/p/nuzip

For programmers, a framework is provided that shows you how to link specific screens in your application to specific sections in the help file.

NüHelp is written in C#
