January 28th, 2013: ExeOutput for PHP 1.7 available. Chromium improvements, optical zoom, external file support.
Applications made with ExeOutput for PHP run PHP scripts, PHP applications, and PHP websites natively, and do not require a web server, a web browser, or PHP distribution. They are stand-alone and work on any computer with recent Windows versions.
End users run the compiled application as easily as they would run any EXE file. From their perspective, they're running a web browser that displays your PHP pages, as if these pages were hosted on a remote server. You decide whether the browser rendering engine is Trident (same as Internet Explorer) or WebKit (same as Google Chrome). Your application can handle HTML 5 and CSS 3.
Because each application is self-contained, you never have to worry about having the proper PHP distribution on their computers. There are no port conflicts and no firewall problems because everything needed to run the application is contained in the EXE file.
Unlike simple PHP-to-EXE wrappers, ExeOutput for PHP supports password protection, anti-debugger features, GUI customization, and code signing certificates. It's easy to create portable applications that run completely from a USB drive.
The developer can customize any aspect of the application by adding custom buttons and menu items, displaying popup windows, selecting skins, and much more. It's simple to add your custom icon, and modify the About box.
Whether you're a PHP developer who wants to make native applications for the desktop without other skills, web developer who needs to convert an online application into a standalone executable, or a computer consultant who needs to turn a customer's website sales presentations and catalogs into self-contained programs, ExeOutput for PHP has the tools that you need.
