Windows NT cannot open a 32-bit help file if a 16-bit help file is already open. You get the following error message:
When you click OK, you receive the following error message:
Windows NT supports both 16-bit and 32-bit Help files. Windows NT uses Winhelp.exe for 16-bit Help files and Winhlp32.exe for 32-bit Help file.
This problem occurs when a user tries to open a 32-bit Help file but already has a 16-bit version of Help running. Windows NT, instead of starting the 32-bit Help engine, will pass the 32-bit Help file to the 16-bit Help engine. As a result, the user will get the error message.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows NT 4.0 or Windows NT Server 4.0, Terminal Server Edition. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
