ZZEE PHPExe compiles PHP, HTML, Javascript, Flash and other web files into Windows GUI exes. You can rapidly develop Windows GUI applications by employing the familiar PHP web paradigm. You can use the same code for online and Windows applications with little or no modification.

Examples of compiled applications include ZZEE PHPExe itself and ZZEE Text Utility, available as both online and Windows application. There are other samples as well.

Version 2.6.0 adds compatibility with IE 9 (depends on which IE version is installed on your user's computer). It now handles PHP file_exists() specially to make compilation of various frameworks easier. Also you can get command line arguments as well as the directory in which your user runs your compiled exe in PHP.
