  • A machine comfortably running a useful version of Windows, with Windows XP SP3 as a base specification.
  • You will probably want some StrongHelp files. It is assumed that if you are downloading this software, you'll have some. :-)
    Give them the extension ".3d6" (the RISC OS filetype number, automatic if you are using !Samba over a network) or ".shf" - it doesn't matter which you use - and drop the files into the Manuals directory within StrawHelp. This is usually:
      C:\Program Files\HeyRick\StrawHelp\Manuals
    Then run StrawHelp and it will find your manuals...
    I have provided an example manual set to get you started, it's on the download page.
  • You may require my various dependencies pack. This is because I supply my software without the runtime libraries. The reason for this is that pretty much all of my Windows software uses the same three megabytes of libraries. Install it once, you are done! No point supplying the same thing over and over again with every update of every program.
    If you experience problems when starting strawhelp which refer to a missing DLL or missing OCX, then you need to download and install the Various Dependencies, 3,240K.
