Why is that?  Is there a .h file that only comes with the HTML Help
Workshop that you need to #include?  Or is it that you need the import
library at link time?  My Windows knowledge is pretty rusty, but maybe
you can use LoadLibrary() to get around this.  See:


Approaching this from another angle, it looks like the HTML Help
Workshop is something that MS lets you download for no charge.  If
that's right, needing it wouldn't stop users from recompiling winboard;
it would just be an inconvenience.

I think WinHelp is in one of the standard Windows system libraries, so
you didn't need the old help workshop to link to it.
