hhc.exe is found, because it is not reported that hhc is not there.
I guess you have used an irregular name (from hhc's point of view) as 
the name or alias of a help topic, or you have an irregular name of an 
Rd file.
Have you tried with a recent and released version of R such as R-2.1.1? 
Your's is unreleased, obviously.
If it still won't work, please sent me the source package and I will 
take a look.
