    "Good but can be improved"

    October 15, 2009   |   By egbas

    Version: Help Explorer Viewer 3

    Pros

    Biggest advantage over MS CHM viewer is that you can change font size of the document without touching internet font size settings

    Cons

    1. single click on the left pane links does not activate the article
    2. if CHM extension is associated with the application , double clicking a file does not open it automatically , you still have to issue FILE/Open

    Summary

    Much better substitue to regular CHM viewer

    "Does what it's supposed to. I needed it for .HLP files"

    August 03, 2009   |   By foobar420

    Version: Help Explorer Viewer 3

    Pros

    Actually allows the mouse wheel when viewing older .hlp files! Gives a fresh, modern look for users of the old Windows Help. It allows sidebar for a index listing in older hlp files too.

    Cons

    Didn't install properly. To make it work, I had to move (drag-n-drop) the "gre" folder into the "bin" folder of the program, located at:
    C:\Program Files\HelpExplorer Software\Help Explorer 3

    Summary

    The Windows Help program that came with Windows is horribly outdated and frustrating to use, this is a decent replacement for my case.

    The download could have been WAY smaller... The program is actually packed very unprofessionally, I was surprised that it actually worked as well as it did.

    "It's great as a simple .chm viewer."

    March 04, 2009   |   By jjanes188

    Version: Help Explorer Viewer 3

    Pros

    It suits my needs just as a reader. It's the simplest and quickest solution.

    Cons

    It would be nice if it had a search function but let's face it, it's FREE.

    Summary

    I like it because it is free and quick and simple and solved my problem of not being able to open .chm files in my Windows XP SP2 PC that I downloaded as part of a .zip application.

    Thanks to the developers of HelpExplorer 3.0 viewer.

    Update: HelpExplorer 3.0 viewer does have a search function. Wow! Couldn't ask for more.
