Upgrading MSDN documentation

I have Visual Studio 2005 and its original MSDN help. I'd like to upgrade
the Help.
Is it possible and how?

Thanks

Well, an easy answer would be to use the online help. This will tend
to be as up to date as possible.

Actually, with msdn.microsoft.com available, I've never seen the point
of installing the local help... if I'm offline for a while I can
usually "wing it" with object-browser and reflector, or just move onto
something else until I am back online and can check msdn.

Hi,

You need to download the new version of the library. IIRC you need to
have a valid subscription to MSDN for that.

I think the opposite, I always install the local copy, I tend to find
it more easy to use (especially search) than the online version.

thrith be told, they have improved a lot the online version, at least
the frames are not resize back to theirs original sizes from one page
to the other.

Also worth of notice is that the library is not updated that often (or
at least the amount of updates is not big from one version to the
other) so I tend to simply ignore the upgrades until a new version of
the IDE is released.
