How To Convert HTML To EXE

Recommended Posts

If I remember right, MS used to provide a tool to convert HTML to EXE during the times of Win XP. I can't remember the name now. It was very simple, but got the job done flawlessly.

Shame they stopped supporting it.

If I recall correctly, Microsoft wanted to replace Win32 Executable with HTML and JAVA SCRIPT based apps (Microsoft Neptune and some early UWP Apps). It is pretty much impossible to actually convert HTML to EXE (HTML is hyper text markup language and it need to be processed by other applications to display, cannot be loaded directly into memory), but it is possible to append or compress the HTML and all its related files to an EXE, then open it in an embedded HTML viewer. Most of those converted EXE files are Internet Explorer dependent.
