How to read CHM files in 98lite MICRO?

by LitePC

CHM files are compressed html and as such require the IE html rendering engine to be read.

You can read CHM files in 98lite's Sleek or Chubby shell with IE removed because both of these leave the IE HTML rendering engine mshtml.dll on the system.

In the micro configuration all traces of the Microsoft HTML machinery are removed and therefore it is impossible to read .CHM files.

If you need .CHM support you would re-run 98lite from within your existing setup and choose the shellswap option to convert from Micro to Sleek. This will install shdocvw.dll and mshtml.dll (the IE html rendering core) and provide support for CHM files but will not install the rest of the IE browser.
