mshcMigrate is a VS 2010\2012\2013\2014+ help integrators new best friend. It migrates older help formats to VS 2010+ Help (.mshc Help Viewer format). Assists you in testing and debugging your VS 2010+ help and more.
Developed by The Helpware Group in partnership with Microsoft. mshcMigrate allows you to migrate older help content (MS Help 2 and MS HTML Help 1.x) to MS Help Viewer format (the new format for MS Visual Studio 2010+ help). It takes various inputs including projects files (.hxc and .hhp), compiled help files (.hxs and .chm), and help folders.
Outputs include .mshc/.cab help package files and .msha manifest files. The application includes several additional tools that allows you to test, install/uninstall, view the HelpLibManager.exe output log, perform API calls, and explore the help library data store.
Licensing: Commercial use of this software requires that you purchase a license to help support this project. Free for experimenting and adhock use. Purchasing a license will remove a nag screen from the software.
