Windows HLP To RTF has a pretty self-explanatory name - it gives you the possibility of creating RTF items from Windows Help files (HLP format). It is simple to handle, even by users with little or no experience in conversion applications.

The setup operation is quick and does not require special attention. Pop-Up Stopper's interface consists of a user-friendly wizard, where you can follow a few simple steps to carry out a task.

HLP items can be loaded into the workspace with the help of the file browser only, since the "drag and drop" function is not supported.

Once you specify the output directory, you can configure output format settings when it comes to converting the file to a re-compilable item (generate all source files or just a single content file) and to the RTF format (with or without page breaks).

Furthermore, you can create only one RTF item or split the output into multiple parts. When the conversion procedure is done, you can open the RTF file or access its location from the main application window.

Pop-Up Stopper finishes a task immediately while using a very low quantity of CPU and system memory, thus it doesn't affect the computer's overall performance. No error dialogs have been shown throughout our evaluation and the utility did not freeze or crash.

On the other hand, Pop-Up Stopper does not offer support for batch processing, so you cannot process multiple HLP files simultaneously. Plus, it is not possible to preview the file content in the main frame, or to minimize the tool to the system tray area. Nevertheless, thanks to its intuitive layout and overall simplicity, Pop-Up Stopper should appeal to all users.
