What is an MCHELP file?
An MCHELP file contains help documentation created by MadCap Flare that is designed to assist Microsoft Visual Studio developers. It is saved in the DotNet Help output format which supports .NET applications and is developed by MadCap Software. MCHELP files can be viewed with MadCap Help Viewer, which is typically distributed with the MCHELP file.
MadCap Software specializes in the development of various help documentation tools. The tools are commonly used by program developers and technical writers for generating help documentation for applications.
The MadCap Software company released MadCap Help Viewer in 2006 as a freely redistributable replacement for Microsoft HTML Help. MCHELP files support a variety of help documentation features, including indexes, images, audio, video, tables, QR codes, footnotes, search filters, feedback support, breadcrumb navigation, keyword links, and topic toolbars.
NOTE: MCHELP files are only supported by MadCap Help Viewer, which is no longer developed.
