Is there any software or method through which I can extract an image from a .chm file and use it in a word document?

You can use CHM Decompiler or something like it (do a google search), but if all you need is one image from a chm file, I suggest you just take a screen capture (I use SnagIt -- as with most capture tools, you can select a portion of the window; you don't have to select the whole page)... It's quick and painless. :)

I've been trying to find a working tool for viewing .chm's in linux....Including the firefox extension, and all of them fail....

can someone point me to a known stable App I can compile in Make?

I know there are a few that will convert them to pdf but I haven't seen any they will convert to a doc.

are any of the .chm to .pdf converters web based or have linux packages?

I've installed this App, w/all its dependencies as well, and it just never loads

I don't have a clue where to look for why

Thx a lot for the help ppl.

if you know coding this may help you reverse engineer it

http://www.speakeasy.org/~russotto/chm/chmformat.html

this may help to...it converts .chm's to HTML which you can then copy & paste into word

I think this one even coverts it to word

EDIT: found another one

Doomtroll,

I don't know which, if any, windows manager you use, but if you are using Gnome did you try gnochm (or if you're using the evil KDE did you try kchmviewer) [if those are having problems did you check to make sure that qt is up to date for kchmviewer or that you're using a recent copy of kde and python (& gconf!) are up-to-date for gnochm)? If those don't work (I suspect you're hitting library issues. I never did get xchm to work, btw), you can almost certainly extract the files from the chm using arCHMage (probably your best option since it only requires PyCHM and chmlib to work).... Last ditch, did you try running a win application under wine?

I'm using XFCE with the Gnome tools installed...I'll look into arCHMage...haven't ran that one yet

i had a problem like that once and the only way it would work was to run it from a terminal like this

xchm *.chm

it worked when i launched it that way.

there's also gnochm and a kde one too KchmViewer

to open a chm file using the firefox extension go to File>Open Chm Files, then navigate to the chm file :D the one i've got is called CHM Reader
