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.
|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|
|License:||Free for personal use|

Latest version is 22.214.171.124. Version is outdated and the download link redirects to an uninstaller, no doubt this entry has been collection dust.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.
