Has anyone developed a .dll that can bring up in EG a second HELP.chm tool? Got word from Tech Support the other day HOW to add it to the EG 7.1 Menu system, by altering the .config file, and now I see the option appearing in my Menus. But the next step is to build a custom tool that brings up a popup window to allow me to reference my newly minted Help.chm file. As good as Chris Hemedinger is, he just can't bring a Luddite like me over the finish line. I'm having troubles with the VB sample I downloaded from his examples compiling in Visual Studio.
Has anyone tried this before, and has a Custom Tool they would like to share?

Hi @fredmayer23 - don't give up on me yet!
Is your CHM file something that you built for your users? And you just want to launch it from the EG menu? A sample command might be:

After shuffling between versions of Microsoft Visual Studio and the SAS libraries, I was able to get one of the samples to compile! then I set out to swap out existing code for my own, and Land o Goshan, I have it running the way I want.
Now, on to other ideas for tasks that can be automated with a custom tool. Thanks for all the help!
