Error while compiling HTML Help 2.x

Am using Visual Studio 2008

I'm encountering the following error while compiling HTML Help 2.x help file. The 1.x file generates a chm file properly.

Fatal Error HXC2008: Failed to initialize Microsoft Help file system. Reinstall Microsoft Help Workshop.

When I searched msdn for this error it said, reinstall the SDK. I tried doing that but SDK failed with error code 1603.


What do I do now?

I'm looking to include my conceptual content in dynamic help of Visual Studio.

Well ultimately solved the problem when I re-installed Visual Studio 2008 SDK.

The problem with installing Visual Studio 2008 SDK was that there was not enough space on C drive.

If u ever come across any such problems, have a look at the eventviewer. You'll get enough information there.
