Re: Microsoft Windows Help program (WinHlp32.exe) memory corruption

I was looking and appear that this bug was fixed a long time ago at ms,

No, the bugs remain.  However...

also windows help (.hlp) do not appear to be automatic opened in windows
vista and later.

That's the point - hlp is such an unsafe file format that the
winhlp32.exe was *removed* from Vista.
