Are you trying to open a .hlp help file in Windows Vista, 7 or 8?

The helpfiles for older software are not supported by newer versions of Widows, which might be your problem. I'm afraid your post isn't very clear about what it is you need exactly.

The older version of winhlp32.exe, which will display the helpfiles for older software, can be found online with a bit of searching.

Or if you're not happy doing that, then let us know and I can help with that.

If it's a *.doc file then there are various third-party viewers which will do it, if you don't have a doc viewer with your copy of Windows.
