Here are some tips with running H2Reg.exe from several popular installers.Polish translation: Thank you Valeria Aleksandrova who has created a Polish translation of this page INNO a popular free installer. We use INNO installer to package the H2Reg download. During installation, Setup registers our H2 document files under the Namespace "hw.H2Reg". It registers a Filter under "hw.h2reg", and even performs a plug-in of "hw.h2reg" into the VS .NET help collection "ms.vscc" (VS 7.0), or "ms.vscc.2003" (VS 7.1), or "ms.vsipcc.v80" (VS 2005), or "ms.vsipcc.v90" (VS 2008) whatever is found. Notice that the filter appears in the MS.VSCC since we have plugged into that collection. Then when you uninstall, it unregisters what was registered. H2Reg documentation also comes in .CHM file format.
We've included our INNO setup file (h2reg_setup_script.iss) to help you get started.

Comments from Tim:
NDoc is a free utility for generating class library documentation from .NET assemblies and the XML documentation files generated by the C# compiler. NDoc users add-on documenters to generate documentation in several different formats, including the MSDN-style HTML Help format (.chm), the Visual Studio .NET Help format (HTML Help 2), and MSDN-online style web pages.
The following article by Fons Sonnemans describes how to Integrate NDoc HTML Help 2 into Visual Studio.NET with the help of H2Reg.
The NDOC web site describes how to setup NDOC to generate H2Reg script.
