Please forgive this request if the answer is obvious, but I'm looking for a link to view older versions of the WWWC documentation.

I currently support numerous WWWC applications ( by other developers ) which span a variety of version numbers. They never include the .chm files for those old versions with their source code, and I'm constantly digging around my own machine to find a WWWC help file for a version that is "close".

Its hard to keep track of what changes are in what versions of WWWC so when I need to support these apps, it would be really great to have all the documentation available at the time of each release ( or at least significant version changes )

If this already exists somewhere, please let me know.

If not, it would be great if someone (Rick hint hint) could create such a thing.

Thanks

Steve

The docs aren't online - there's just the latest version, so you need to get the CHM files for old docs.

Anybody registered can get access to the old versions though. If you have a current version the registration notice has links to each of the older versions (down to 5 I think) and you can peel the CHM out of those files.

The v6 and 7 EXEs are a 7zip files the older versions are plain Zip files, so you can just open it with 7zip and pull out the CHM.

The old shareware versions are also online, but I don't think they are listed past v5 either.

Thanks Rick.

I pulled out the help files using the shareware downloads as you suggested and was able to get the following: v468, v527, v622, v725.

Definitely a good start, appreciate your suggestion.
