Delphi Help System WITHOUT Microsoft SDK

The help system in newer versions of Delphi and C++Builder is a pain to navigate. This blog post describes a way you can remove the Microsoft SDK from the help system. This significantly increases the odds you will find the Delphi methods/properties/etc you are looking for instead of Microsoft SDK info you likely don’t care about and can already search for on MSDN.

In addition, if you would like to see the SDK documentation removed by default in the future, leave Dee a comment.
