If you're a young guy, I'll take your answer too. I work in the land of embedded systems where nothing ever dies. Some of the systems I support use CE 4.2/5.0 and Embedded Visual C++ - a bastardized clone of VC++ 6.0 (I think). In EVC++ I can place my cursor on something I am interested in and press help - and I get help.

Years pass, and now I also support a variant using WEC7 and VS2008. No matter how many times I have installed VS2008, help is trashed. It just does not work. I have spend days over the past years trying to resolve this issue. I want to do something stupid simple like click on CString and press F1 to pull up the class description. Nope, never happens.

Any of you resolve this issue? Spoilers?
