2002-01-20 · CreateHKDesktop released
I wanted to create HTML-Kit desktop files for several sets of documents that I frequently update. Instead of using the
"Save Desktop" functionality built into HTML-Kit (Build 292), I wanted to select the documents in Windows Explorer, and somehow
have a correct desktop file created.
A desktop file (extension
.hdf) is in fact an XML document, so I wrote CreateHKDesktop (in Visual Basic), which will
create a correct
.hdf file containing references to files dragged to the CreateHKDesktop window.
CreateHKDesktop can run as a standalone application, but is also a plugin for
The plugin resides in the Addins section of the action bar in HTML-Kit. All it does
is launching the CreateHKDesktop standalone application.
Executable program (a single
.exe file, no setup program) and source package (Visual Basic 6) are available for downloads

CreateHKDesktop is distributed without Visual Basic 6.0 run-time library, which must be downloaded separately,
e.g. from Microsoft.
Chances are that you already have the library installed.
Microsoft XML 2.x library (MSXML.DLL) is not included in the distribution, but must be installed (normally installed because it is part of Internet Explorer
and/or the operating system). If you do miss this dll, you can download
MSXML 2.5 SP1
