    Resolved [RESOLVED] Window 7 FIx to WinHelp Error [1037]

    With the installation of VB5 on Window 7 (32 bit) , Help did NOT work.
    Installed Microsoft's recommended KB, which allowed VB Help to show, but Help examples were missing.
    Received Error: "There was a problem running the macro (1037).

    Finally found a fix using Regedit.

    1) Create Key: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\WinHelp
    2) Create a DWORD SubKey with name" "AllowProgrammaticMacros" '<<One word, and no quotes
    3) Give SubKey a value of "1" '<<no quotes
    Hope this help someone else.

    The above will NOT work for Windows 7 64b Systems, where you have to use the following procedure using Regedit:

    1) Create Key: HKLM/SOFTWARE/Wow6432Node/Microsoft/WinHelp
    2) Create a DWORD SubKey with name" "AllowProgrammaticMacros" '<<One word, and no quotes
    3) Give SubKey a value of "1" '<<no quotes

    (Reference: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...c-29e46b2923d1)

    After doing the above you may receive the following error when trying to open a .hlp extensions file:

    ---------------------------
    Windows Help
    ---------------------------
    Cannot find or load the file inetwh32.dll. This file should be copied to C:\Windows\system32 or a directory in your PATH.
    ---------------------------
    OK
    ---------------------------

    Meaning you will have to download the missing file “inetwh32.dll”

    ATTENTION: After downloading the above file do NOT copy it to:

    “C:\Windows\system32”, instead, copy it to:

    “C:\Windows\SysWOW64”

    That’s it, the error is now fixed for your Windows 7 64b System.
