Fast fix

The Story

So I’m playing with the Kepler software for Astrology charts and it needs the old Windows Help program.

Spend several days searching for this thing on the internet.

  1. You are my hero! After having applied “Fast fix” I read “The Story”. An obstacle race like mine, but you are evidently the better expert.
    I’m setting up a win10pro (if I only had known ;-D) machine (LG Notebook PC 16T90P – if I only had known ;-DDD) full-packed with 20 years old software. I try to avoid VM-software of any vendor. It’s a foible of course …
    I’d be glad to hear from you! Thank you once again for your great efforts!

  2. Sir, you are a hero! With your tool at hand, I can read the manuals of the past, and remember how to play, or find tips!

  3. Hello Daniel,
    There are no instructions on how to use the extracted files.
    Simply run Install.cmd as a normal user or Admin?
    Will this work with Windows 11?
    Why do you add the reference to the site?

    1. Install_Windows_10.cmd
      Right-click -> Run as Administrator was where I found the original files
