Version: 188.8.131.52 I removed HTML Executable from my computer and re-installed, figuring that it would automatically give the right runtime module.
I configured it as a stand-alone exe. Recompiled. On three out of 11 Windows 7 machines available to me at the university where I teach I got the message “DLL runtime module corrupted.” On the other 8 it ran fine. On those three machines I figured it was interference from other installed programs.
Then configured it with runtime module outside the EXE file and it worked on all 11 machines.
BY the way, when I compile, I still sometimes get the error message “Could not rename temporary file to EXE file,” even when I disable McAfee and SugarSync (a file backup program). Rebooting my computer usually makes it work.
In short, HTML is getting a little quirky, but with the runtime module outside the EXE, I can deliver a portable version at conferences. By the way, I’ll send you my program someday. It breaks new ground. It’s a long formal poem in which each iambic pentameter line follows a certain vowel progression (from front to back vowels). In the EXE the user can even toggle on and off a color parse.
A suggestion: what HTML Executable really needs is a download page where trial versions of ebooks made with it can be downloaded. This page would function as a trustworthy source to allay users’ fears of executable ebooks (you could guarantee the safety of the programs) and, incidentally, would serve as valuable free advertising.
All the best,
