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.
