HelpNDoc Personal v1.16

Andrew Lee on 5 Feb 2017

HelpNDoc is a WYSIWYG tool for creating HTML help files (CHM format) and help web sites. It comes with a built-in word processor for authoring pages within the project.

Note: Latest version is adware and is not portable. I have made an older version (V1.16) available for download in case some of you still find it useful.

Category:
System Requirements: Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista
Writes settings to: Writes dockable toolbar config to the registry, but I don't consider this to be critical to the functionality to the app, so I am accepting it as portable. But for those of you who really love to move the toolbars around in a certain way, this app is not portable for you.
Dependencies: Microsoft HTML Help Workshop
Stealth: ? No
Unicode support: No
License: Free for personal use
How to extract:
  1. Download the installer and extract to a temporary folder (if you have difficulty, try the Lupo version of Universal Extractor)
  2. Move the contents of {app} to a folder of your choice
  3. Launch helpndoc.exe

Latest version is 3.2.0.65. Version is outdated and the download link redirects to an uninstaller, no doubt this entry has been collection dust. A lot has changed since v1.13 for example it sports a new interface akin to Word 2010, supports CHM, HTML, PDF, and WORD output., I admit the insert-ads have become a little too obnoxious for me as it's now at the top, sometimes middle and bottom of the pages vs. V1.13 which only inserts a small text at the very bottom. But PDF export seem pretty cool. The new interface is "pretty" but daunting for those who are stuck using office 2003. I don't have enough "points" to update this entry myself nor the time fully judge if this new version is portable enough or not. But with my 5 minutes of time I ran the installer in sandboxie, copied files from a previous install of "Microsoft HTML Help Workshop" and it spit out a nice .chm and pdf file without hitch.

abc: I posted something about this in forums:
http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=42679#p42679 ... essentially I felt like the program had so many adware nags that it really doesn't belong in the freeware category anymore. For the time being, I've added a disclaimer about the version to the main entry.
