Topic: Can WinHelp open a PDF?

Sorry if this is too simple for developers forum. I haven't got a clear answer from posting on the FrameMaker Users forum. I use FrameMaker and then create PDF for user support docs.

The app I support runs on a Unix server and is accessed via MS Windows over a PC network.

Is there a way to get the Windows terminal emulator to open Acrobat Reader and a specified PDF file when the user requests (Windows) Help? I recall that at another job, we could provide a WinHelp file of our own making that opened when the user requested Help so I wonder if it could be done with some file name manipulation and providing the Reader in the right place.

Many TsIA!
