Happenings: I plan to use quotations from the novel of Ruth,
my (now departed) sister. Mum has revised and partially rewritten this,

For Pre Win2K installations: I've taken MSVCRT.dll and MSVCIRT.dll out of the installation as they should

Extract the archive & copy the two files to your %winsys% (either system or system32) directory.
If you do not upgrade from V2.2.X to V2.2.2X (and 3.0 + restrictions) with the chm version (recommended: 5+ Mb), read on.
In order to view the MyReels help, please consult the Microsoft Support Page for old versions of help.

For Win 8_Players, taking ownership of, and rename the old winhlp32.exe before extracting this
to their Windows directory is also possible.
Further workarounds discussed at this thread.
Unless there is a good reason not to, most of the linked files in this spoiler will eventually be removed.
