How to override WINE's native winhlp32.exe?

Post by Kahenraz » Mon Sep 23, 2019 11:58 pm

WINE's winhlp32.exe appears to be missing some features when compared to the Microsoft binary:

Code: Select all

0033:fixme:winhelp:WINHELP_HandleCommand Unhandled command (101) for remote winhelp control
This bug is preventing me from loading a HLP file and have it open to a particular entry.

I would like to replace this with the Microsoft binary for the time being but simply swapping out the file in "drive_c/windows" doesn't prevent it from being run when executed without an explicit path.

For example, this will run WINE's winhlp32.exe:

Code: Select all

wine winhlp32.exe c:/opt/Help/WIN32.HLP
And this will run the Microsoft binary (notice it's already in C:\Windows):

Code: Select all

wine wine32/drive_c/windows/winhlp32.exe c:/opt/Help/WIN32.HLP
How can I override WINE's native winhlp32.exe as intended?
