Adding your own local content to the new Visual Studio Help Library

Third Blog From The Sun - Add your own content to the local Help Library

"In this post, I’ll show you how to create some simple content and add it to the Visual Studio local Help Library. The only tools you’ll need are a command prompt, Notepad, Windows Explorer and the Help Library Manager. This exercise takes about 5 minutes and, when you’re done, you can easily remove the content without any side effects to your help system. This tutorial makes the following assumptions:

  • Visual Studio 2010 (RTM or SP1) is installed on your machine.
  • You have administrator privileges on your machine.
  • You have successfully used the local Help Viewer to read EN-US help content.

Step 1: Create a Topic



Not sure that I've seen this covered in this detail, or at all for that matter, before.
