Ok, first command works.

I'm using fresh .wine directory und initial config with no windows 
version set. And i am using latest CVS, too. Setting windows version to 
"win98" has no effect.

My hhupd.exe is version 4.71.1015.0 with hhctrl.ocx version 4.74.8875.

What about Tom's suggestion setting a more realistic -lower- version in 
builtin hhctrl.ocx? Version number 10.0 is good for applications needing 
hhelp functionality, but not for them with installers.

Thanks, Sven
