Major release ExeOutput for PHP 2 is available

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 13:08:39 GMT

Major release ExeOutput for PHP 2 is available Rewritten from scratch, ExeOutput for PHP 2 lets you use your PHP skills to create powerful Windows apps from your PHP websites and code. Lots of new features such as PHP 7.1 (or below), HTML5 support thanks to Chromium, powerful UI editor, portable MySQL server and much more as you can see below. Customers who own ExeOutput for PHP 1.x can review upgrade conditions. What's new: Support for multiple versions of PHP: from 5.4 to 7.1. We still support Windows XP so we kept PHP 5.4, the last version that officially runs on this OS. Chromium engine upgraded to Chromium Embedded Framework version 3 - Chromium version 51.0.2704.84 - CEF 3 branch 2704.1427, with multithreading support, offering an HTML5-compliant Web browser. Ability to keep Windows XP compatibility for your applications: if the Rendering Engine's WindowsXPCompatible property is set to True, ExeOutput for PHP will use Chromium engine version 49 and CEF 3 branch 2623, the last ones that officially support Windows XP. Be sure to run the Web Update utility to download the Windows XP compatibility pack so that compilation files are available. PHP CGI is now directly used as an external process contrary to the old SAPI method used in ExeOutput 1.x. This brings several advantages: PHP is separated from the UI process, giving more stability and responsiveness. If the PHP process crashes, a new one is started if you refresh the webpage. Your application itself doesn’t crash. Full integration between PHP and Chromium rendering engine: AJAX, cookies, file upload and download dialog boxes, custom request and response HTTP headers, Developer Tools… New console application (command-line or CLI applications) generation: you can turn PHP scripts into stand-alone EXE files without any PHP dependencies. ExeOutput 2 still generates one single EXE file for distribution. Due to the size of the Chromium and PHP distributions, the EXE overhead’s size is near 30 MB. New UI editor to create customized toolbars, menu bars, ribbons… Associate actions to controls, define their properties... New skin engine and option not to use any skin at all (Windows look). Better support for PHP frameworks such as Laravel, CodeIgniter, Fat-Free... Can include a portable MySQL server (MariaDB) to work with your compiled PHP applications. The MySQL server is managed by the application itself without required user action. Export to PDF option in addition to Print. Support for OPCache and XDebug PHP extensions. Windows UAC option: EXE files can now request administrative rights. SHA256 code signing is supported for recent Windows versions. Support for Paquet Builder 3 in order to make Setup packages. Improved built-in PHP.INI editor, added search support. ExeOutput for PHP 2 can now run complex PHP projects such as WordPress, phpmyadmin, Adminer and so on (contrary to ExeOutput 1.x). Description ExeOutput for PHP creates native Windows applications and software programs from websites coded in PHP and HTML. The resulting application is a stand-alone browser app that runs PHP scripts natively without requiring any PHP distribution nor web server. Build Windows apps, custom web browsers, database front-ends, ebooks, games, interactive catalogs, and much more by combining the power of PHP, HTML5 and JavaScript into desktop applications for Windows.

XLS Padlock 2.4 released

Thu, 29 Dec 2016 19:43:07 GMT

Discover a new mean to protect your Excel workbooks with online activation, create registration forms for your customers, and much more. Upgrade is recommended for registered users with an active maintenance. What's new: New Online Activation feature to automate the retrieval of activation keys: the secure workbook can communicate with your website and download activation keys directly from the server instead of prompting end users. You must have set up the XLS Padlock Activation Kit on your web server to use this feature. When the end user starts the application that uses online activation, a dialog box appears telling the user that an activation is required. This dialog box supersedes the “Enter Activation Key” dialog box. The online activation dialog box can be customized at will: basic HTML text can be displayed (you can use HTML tags such as and so on), links and even form fields. Create registration forms for your applications: customers must fill in the form before accessing the secure workbook. Form data is then sent to your web server. In addition to the standard XLS Padlock Key Generator in PHP, we also provide registered users with the XLS Padlock Activation Kit for free. This package contains a basic PHP web application that receives data from the secure workbook, generates appropriate activation keys and sends them back to the application. Thus, everything is automated. A dedicated user guide is included too. This web application can be enhanced and customized at will. Manual activation can be allowed or not for end users who may not have an active Internet connection. Secure save files can now have custom extensions instead of .XLSC. New option: Do not allow other instances of Excel when opening the protected workbook. New option: Disable PDF/XPS Export options in Excel. Improved hardware-locking feature: you can now select one or more hardware components to generate unique system IDs. New method to generate system IDs based on MAC address. New advanced option: Maximize Excel window at startup New variables to retrieve EXE File Version and Product Version fields with VBA code (see VBA extension in our user guide for samples). The Personal XLSB files are no more loaded when opening a protected workbook. Improved compiled VBA code handling when you install a new version of XLS Padlock. XLS Padlock now tests if a provided custom icon file is valid or not before starting the real compilation. Added profile loading/saving to the stand-alone Key Generator. Fixed: in some cases, the "Load previous changes" window would not show up. Fixed license text editor problems on Large DPI screens. Updated user guide. Updated our code signing tool GSignCode. Minor improvements. Backward Compatibility Due to the improved hardware-locking system ID generator, you must resend activation keys to your existing customers if you rebuild your EXE files made with a previous version of XLS Padlock. XLS Padlock is software for protecting your Excel workbooks, VBA code and formulas. XLS Padlock works as an Excel compiler that allows you to turn your Excel workbooks into secure applications (XLS to EXE). A lot of security options and customization possibilities.

Tue, 15 Nov 2016 16:48:01 GMT

Our ebook compiler has been updated with great new features: enhanced video and audio streaming support, Web Update for your ebooks, external file encryption (large audio and video files) and much more. Upgrade is highly recommended if your maintenance is still active. Changes: New compression method to bring more responsive ebooks: this method doesn't unpack data to memory fully but by chunks, which increases the loading speed of large files and the ebook's responsiveness. It is automatically selected by HTML Executable for compressing source files larger than 1 MB. You can also enable it for any source file thanks to the new file property: "Use streaming-compatible compression method". Improved loading speed and memory usage when playing large audio and video files compressed in EXE files and not in external files. Fixed random thread deadlock when compiling or starting a new project on some computers. Removed the anti-debugger option which triggered some antivirus false positives. Increased length of the "what's new" text in Web Update and tip about inserting multiple lines. Improved scanning of source files when starting a new project. Changed system ID method that uses the hard disk's manufacturer serial ID. Warning: this can break existing hardware-locked keys, you will have to provide your end users with new hardware-locked registration keys. New global variable "herestartwebupt" for Web Updates: now you have a way to notify users that their publication has been updated after a successful web update. Check the documentation for an example. Fixed: the red cross button of the PDF viewer's toolbar was always visible in HTML viewer publications. Fixed: "Could not register tab" error at startup on Windows PC tablets. Fixed: the built-in HTTP server was always started at publication startup although it wasn't necessary. Improved: in some cases, a simple error message box is displayed now rather than the full error report dialog box. Updated virtualization engine, PDF viewer engine. Compatibility for projects made with previous versions of HTML Executable A change in system ID method that uses the hard disk's manufacturer serial ID can break existing hardware-locked keys, so you will have to provide your end users with new hardware-locked registration keys. Runtime modules for version 4.9.1 are compatible with publications made by versions 4.9.0, 4.8 but not compatible with publications made with previous versions of HTML Executable (4.7 and lower). The full change log is available here Download HTML Executable Description HTML Executable is a software program that allows anyone to turn websites, HTML and PDF documents into Windows software applications (EXE files) featuring a custom browser.

HTML Executable 4.9 is out

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 17:00:28 GMT

HTML Executable 4.9 is out Turn your websites, HTML and PDF files into secure ebooks or apps for Windows. Our ebook compiler has been updated with great new features: Web Update for your ebooks, external file encryption (large audio and video files) and much more. Upgrade is highly recommended if your maintenance is still active. Changes: New Web Update feature: it enables publications to check for updates, download them and automatically install them. A Web Update Wizard guides end users through the updating process. No additional software is required, but you must have a web server where to host public update files generated by HTML Executable. Watch our video tutorial about web update for ebooks Publications can automatically check for updates at startup. A "What's new" text can be optionally displayed. New global HEScript function to trigger a check for updates: Global.HEStartWebUpdate. This can be invoked from menu items or toolbar buttons for instance. New ability to encrypt external files: if you decide to keep large source files such as audio and video files outside of the publication (as external files), you may still want to protect them against copy. HTML Executable can encrypt external files so that these files can only be opened by the publication. This is a security feature that will help avoid unwanted copying of your publication resources. It works with large files, especially media files such as HTML5 video (MP4 format) and audio. New "Encrypt external files" option in the File Manager to display the "Encrypt external files" utility. The latter allows you to decide which external files you want to protect with encryption. Improved behavior when reading external files.

Updated EXE overheads to remove code that could trigger false positives in some antivirus programs. New option "Use virtualization for the runtime module" set off by default to minimize the risk of false positives in some antivirus programs.

New field option to specify the PDF bookmark panel's initial width. New option to disable the "View Commands" panel of the built-in PDF viewer. Our code signing utility now looks for certificates both in current user and local machine stores. New "Reset with default list" button to fill the forbidden programs blacklist with pre-defined items. Hyphens and other non-numeric characters are ignored in short registration keys. This lets you make registration keys such as 123-456-78 instead of 12345678. Fixed task dialog sizing problem in Windows 10 anniversary update. Improved occurrence count of the built-in Search feature. Fixed incorrect EXE version information random bug. Fixed infinite loop bug that could occur when starting a new project ("creating XML structure" wait dialog box). Fixed window.external.GetHEScriptCom JavaScript call bug. Improved letter confusion detection in registration keys. Improved invalid character detection in fields to avoid system error code 122 "The data area passed to a system call is too small". HEScript event named OnWindowCloseQuery is now added to UserMain by default. Fixed bug that could lead to incorrect "Runtime error 217" and "HTML Executable corrupted DLL runtime Module" error messages on some computers. Fixed: some Self-Extracting publication options were not saved in the project file. Fixed: Self-Extracting publications were actin[...]
