Default how to make help files in VB

I am trying to make help for a software that I have made in VB. The help I am talking about would be similart to that in MSDN. I have made a tree-view of all the topics and they expand and collapse on mouse-clicks over them. But I am unable to show the HTML files that contain the help content on them.
What is compiled HTML file? This is what is used my MSDN.
Please reply soon.
Thanks!

Use the HTML Help viewer to create a compiled help file, but I don't know how to open it up in VB. A compiled help file is a collection of HTML pages, TOC file, index file, and other files that display the help information. It compiles all of this into a help file.

You can use a program like Doc2Help or RoboHelp to create a help file associated with your database.
