.chm files are opened by "Microsoft� HTML Help Exe". You are not "running" the .chm file itself, your are running HTML Help Exe which opens and interprets the .chm file for you. That being said, .chm files are just compiled HTML. Decompiling them is easy; MS supply a tool to do just that (search MSDN). So you could decompile them and access them as plain text files.
