  • Generate ready-to-compile HTML Executable projects (.hepx) with settings taken from the HTML Help file.
  • Protect your HTML Help source files against decompilation, copying... once they are compiled in an executable program file - disable the "Show source" context menu command.
  • Make user-attractive and customized executable files thanks to the features of HTML Executable: skin, menus, toolbars, windows... may be changed the way you like.
  • Add your own menus and toolbar buttons to your compiled HTML executable files.
  • Turn your HTML Help files into trial ebooks so you can sell them.

  • Keep the same Table of Contents (TOC) as in your HTML Help file, and/or include a powerful search engine.
  • Display splash screens, custom message boxes.

  • Map IDs for pages are supported too and map files are automatically generated by the program in the language of your choice.
