Using Extra! Help

To view the Extra! Help Update, an Internet browser (and Internet connection) is required.

To view the legacy Extra! Help on Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows Server 2008, you must install the Windows Help program (WinHlp32.exe), which is available for download from the Microsoft web site. For more information, see https://support.microfocus.com/kb/doc.php?id=7021283. Note: Beginning with Windows Server 2012, WinHlp32.exe is not available, so legacy Help is not supported.

Additional Information

For more information, see Extra! Technical Resources at http://support.microfocus.com/product/?prod=XTREME.

In preparing system requirements guidelines, Micro Focus may rely on published claims (that it cannot independently confirm) regarding the capabilities of third-party products.
