Strange build issue

Hi,
I inherited the maintenance of an application that was probably
intially created using VS 6. It is written using MFC. I recently
converted this to VS2005 with minimal problems. One thing that has come
up now is that every time I run the app within VS 2005 it says that the
project is out of date and wants to build it even though I have not
made any changes. If I click Yes, it will then pop-up a dialog that
says,
windows cannot find hcw make sure you typed the name correctly and try
again.
Does not affect the application, more bothersome than anything.
I have posted this problem once before, cannot remember if it was to
this group or not. Anyways I am still having trouble finding this one.
Any help would be appriciated.
Thanks
Jeff

Looks like the help workshop compiler.  Is the help coming out ok?  Look in
get post build settings to see if he was calling that there.

Hi AliR,
The help seems OK, not really much of it, just showing what some
shortcut keys do.
But it is something to do with the help workshop compiler. This new PC
I am using did not have that. I downloaded it. Not sure if I did this
last part the best way, but I copied the hcw.exe file to my project
directory. I then right clicked on the .hpj file, choose compile. I can
now start my app without that problem.
Thanks for the response.
