Actually, that action calls the Help & Manual [1] executable (HelpMan.exe, or whatever executable is associated w/ the extension of the .hm? file specified in the action). hhc.exe is the command-line compiler for MS HTML Help, and I'm not sure about HHW. Since Help & Manual projects can target multiple output formats (one of which is HTML Help), it is necessary to call HelpMan.exe to generate all the desired formats. HelpMan.exe does ultimately call hhc.exe (at least by default on my box, configured at Tools | Customize | Help Compilation in the H&M IDE) if .chm output is one of the outputs being targetted.

If you don't use Help & Manual and want to invoke the HTML Help compiler directly, use a Run Program command that calls hhc.exe.
