I'm afraid it's not entirely clear what you're asking
for here. To open a .chm file you can just use os.startfile.
To open it a little more precisely, you can call hh.exe
with the subprocess.call function and some suitable params.

If you need more than that, you'd better come back with a
more specific enquiry.
