Does the Help File Builder generate a CHM help file format? I didn't see this as a choice for help file format.

Does the Help File Builder generate the help file from the compiled XML? I didn't see where to input the xml file path.

You still do not know how to use this program.
The simplest way is this...

  1. From the Project Menu, select "New Project From Visual Studio Project..."
  2. Browse to your project directory and select the VS.NET project file
  3. To Compile the CHM, make sure you set the following option

  • From the SHFB Project Properties, scroll to "Build"
  • Set the HelpFileForm to Htmlhelp1x

Another way, is to create a new SHFB project and use the Add button at
the top to add the dll and xml files.

There's an entire Getting Started section in the help file. Reading through that should get you going as well.
