ZZEE PHPExe : PHP to exe compiler for Windows

ZZEE PHPExe compiles PHP, HTML, Javascript, Flash, images and other web files into standard Windows GUI exes. It features GUI compiler, embedded PHP encoder, royalty free distribution. You can put your own icon into a compiled exe and name it as you need. There is no TCP/IP to avoid complaints and warnings from firewalls, so your users will not be interrupted by a firewall message asking if to allow the program to connect or accept connections from the internet.

PHP is one of the most popular languages for web authoring. You can utilize all the power of PHP and use lots of its modules to perform various tasks like read, save and modify files, get directory contents, interact with databases, create PDF, parse XML and HTML, manipulate strings, connect to web and FTP sites, send and receive email, compress and encrypt files, create images on the fly, and more.
Additionally, ZZEE PHPExe provides extensions to the Javascript language that implement File Open and Save dialogs, Browse for Folder Dialog, and ShellExecute function, that are not normally present in webbrowsers.
Besides ZZEE PHPExe takes protection of your code seriously. Users don't see your source files, there is the integrated PHP encoder. At no stage HTML, javascript or other source files are extracted to disk or saved in Internet Explorer cache (note, you can explicitly allow caching of some file types to enable Flash, PDF, video and other embedded content). We have undertaken a lot of other measures to make sure that your code is protected.
You will have full control over the window of your exe, its size, style, border, scrollbars, etc. You can turn on and off Javascript error messages, context menu, text selection, and so on.
