Can't display old help file for Microsoft Script Control

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.scripting.vbscript,microsoft.public.windowsxp.general (More info?)

I want to use the Microsoft Script Control MSSCRIPT.OCX which is
automatically registered when Windows XP is installed. I am able to do some
things with the control but I'm having problems, so I'd like to read the
help file MSSCRIPT.HLP, which is not automatically installed by Windows XP.
I've gone to msdn.microsoft.com and downloaded the latest sct10en.exe
installation package for the script control, version 1.0.0.8825. In this
package, the control is dated 8/25/2004, but the help file is dated 5/24/97.

So naturally, WXP doesn't know how to display this old help file. I get the
message: "Cannot find or load the file HLP95EN.DLL. This file should be
copied to D:\WINDOWS/system32 or a directory in your path." My W98SE system
can't display this help file either. WXP partially displays the help file,
some or all of the text, but does not display its graphics.

Can anyone point me in the right direction to get the tools necessary to
display this help file in WXP?

Thanks,
-Paul Randall

    I found HLP95EN.DLL on my Works 2002 Suite CD. It fixed the problem. It is
    probably installed with Office and many components of Office, so few of us
    should have this problem.

    Mine seems to open up using winhlp32.exe

    Do either of these commands enable you to view it?

    Start > run > winhlp32
    Navigate to file

    OR

    Start > Run > winhelp
    File> Open > (navigate to file)
