What you are looking at is the Microsoft knowledge base for VB 6. I
don't think you can view those chm files individually. I think they
are linked in someway so the help system can search all of the files
for a certain method, function, or sub. So you can't just take one and
extract it to text. I've never created multiple chm files like that
myself but I know it is possible. Basically, all a chm file is a bunch
of extremely compressed html files. Kind of like a zip archive but
visible through Microsoft help.
