Reply to: XMetal 5 custom dialogs – hhf files

Older .hhf forms should work in newer versions of XMetaL BUT require the installation of Microsoft's FM20.dll to function properly.  Microsoft restricted the redistribution of the FM20.dll and that led us to replace .hhf forms with .xft forms to get around this restriction and dependency. 

FM20.dll was distributed as part of Microsoft Office but I am not sure about newer MSO releases.  It was also available as part of the Microsoft ActiveX Control Pad kit.  Try these links to see if you can get a copy onto your system:
