I have upgraded my Windows 8.1 64 bit and Delphi 7 continued to work. So far so good. It means the procedure to get Delphi 7 on Windows 10 is still OK.
What did no work? The Help function is broken again, Microsoft did not (yet?) update he HELP support for Windows 10.
After some googling I arrived at:
Here is a solution (thanks to Komeil Bahmanpour): Go to his site
Download Local copy since 2020
I needed a solution in order to get help working for Delphi on Windows 10.
Komeil’s install.cmd file didn’t work as is (its pre Win10) so I simply modified it.
Unpack the download (Install.cmd, winhlp32.exe, winhlp32.exe.mui) to a new directory.
Edit the install.cmd and add the following two lines to the ‘settings’ section:
(yes, ‘WindowsVersion=7’ is correct.) Save the file and execute as administrator.
All should go without error. Delphi help, and every other help file I’ve tried, now works exactly as it should
