Create Installer





HTML Executable generates single executable files ready for delivery. You just need to distribute the application .exe file to your users/customers. But after having built your application, you may also want to distribute it over the Internet: you may want to package your compiled application into Zip archive or even an installer. Installers are interesting because they can install several applications, additional files like readme, create shortcuts in the Windows Start menu, and offer an uninstaller to let end users remove any trace of your application from their computer.


Generate an Installer


HTML Executable uses our software program Paquet Builder to generate custom and compact Installer programs for publications. It must be installed on your computer before you can use this feature.


Paquet Builder is a mix between a 7z Self-Extracting archive maker and an Installer routine generator. Thanks to its exhaustive feature set, you can create flexible and compact self-extractors for professional file and software delivery. Package up any document or program files, visually construct simple or sophisticated multi-language distribution and installation packages; generate updates and patches; wrap multimedia presentations or several Windows Installer MSI setups into single .exe files ready for delivery over the Internet.

How does it work?


You will get a window with these fields:



First, you need to fill in the three fields Destination Path, Setup Title and Your Application Name: "Destination Path" is the default folder where you want your ebook to be installed, "Setup Title" is the title that will appear on all Installer windows, and the last one is obvious.


Secondly, press Generate to create the project. HTML Executable will then launch Paquet Builder to let you modify the new project.


HTML Executable will create a default project for Paquet Builder: you can then edit this project with the installer creator and of course compile it to create the installer package.
