Stand-alone executable

Instead of converting a TreePad file to .chm, .hlp or .pdf format, you can also compile your TreePad file into a single program containing your data and the viewer program.
This stand-alone program, or executable ('exe-file') does not need any additional files to be distributed.

exe-eBook Creator
exe-eBook creator is a freeware ebook compiler for TreePad files. It enables you to create an executable (program) from a TreePad .tpd or .hjt file. This single "exe-file" contains the TreePad database as well as the TreePad Viewer program.
The advantage of an exe-eBook is that it can be distributed royalty-free as a single file, since both data and viewer program are contained inside the program. Furthermore, a TreePad exe-eBook runs directly without installing anything! exe-eBook creator can also compile password protected/encrypted TreePad files as exe-eBook. Additionally: exe-eBooks contain a search engine, an options screen, zoom function 10% - 1000%, history back/forward, etc.
An exe-eBook can contain plain text articles, formatted articles, images, tree node icons, hyperlinks.
