Hi,
Would anybody know if there is a way to create .exe file from a set of html files.
I have a few html files and image files that i would like to distribute to others. But, I do not want them to store the files in a directory and then run it. It would be much simpler if it was distributed as an application and then they just run the application.
Please let me know if there is a way to do it.
Thanks in advance.
Raji.

Why don't you just zip the files with WinZip. Then it will keep the format you want when they extract it.

There is a shareware tool, you can look at http://www.cadkas.de, called HTML2Exe Baler 2.0 . It does exactly what you asked.
I am not familiar with it and never used it since it costs $20, and I don't like to pay for something I could do myself, but the description matches your request, so may be you could use a demo version.

Thanks for the response.
This is for sending a party invitation as html with few images.
I just want my invitees to click on the link; not unzip it and then do all stuffs;
I am going to look at the tool suggested by Yuriy.
I just found out that I can copy and paste my html page (not the code) in outlook and outlook takes care of embedding the images. This way, do not have to send multiple files. I just have to set the mail format in outlook to html.
Regards,
Raji.

Well, if there is only one page envolved, you can use IE "Save as" and select type "Web Archive, single file".
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
