CHM To Exe converts .chm files to secure, stand-alone applications, and creates EXE files quickly using HTML Executable. Users can easily explore and extract all source files from open CHM files, resulting in easy-to-use, standalone programs.
One of the standout features of CHM To Exe is its ability to allow you to explore the contents of your HTML Help files without forcing you to decompile them first. With this program, you can open any .chm file, view its contents, see its properties, and even generate a ready-to-compile HTML Executable project with settings taken directly from the source file.
The security features offered by CHM To Exe are also a major selling point. The program allows you to protect your source files against decompilation, copying, and other security threats by compiling them into an executable program file. You can even disable the "Show Source" context menu command and prevent print, copy, and select commands on any topic you want.
One of the most impressive capabilities of CHM To Exe is its integration with HTML Executable. This allows you to take advantage of HTML Executable's extensive customization and personalization options to create user-attractive and fully-customized .exe files. You can add menus, toolbar buttons, splash screens, custom message boxes, and even turn your HTML Help files into trialware with custom registration keys and online activation systems.
Finally, CHM To Exe's ability to distribute your executable files safely, thanks to digital signatures with Authenticode (certificates), ensures that your files remain protected and secure. Additionally, map IDs for pages are supported and map files are automatically generated in the language of your choice.
Overall, I found CHM To Exe to be a powerful and versatile software that exceeded all of my expectations. One thing to keep in mind, though, is that CHM To Exe requires HTML Executable in order to compile .exe files.
