Using Reflection Help

To view the legacy Reflection Help on Windows 8.1, 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 Technical Note 2294. Note: Beginning with Windows Server 2012, WinHlp32.exe is not available, so legacy Help is not supported.
