With the advent of the Internet and the rapid development of electronic publications, software tools for producing various types of electronic books are also emerging. Nowadays, everyone can make their own works and materials into electronic books very easily, quickly and cheaply. The ancients said: If workers want to do good things, they must first sharpen their tools! Faced with a variety of electronic reading tools, in the end choose which software is good? The following will review each of the common 6 categories of 32 eReader production tool software one by one, so that everyone can make the necessary choices.

One, EXE output format class production tool

This is an electronic reading file format that is currently popular and favored by many people. There are also the most relevant production tools for this format. Its greatest feature is that it is easy to read, simple to make and the electronic books produced are beautiful and can be read without special reader support. Electronic books in this format do not have high requirements for the operating environment. However, this format of e-books also has some deficiencies, such as the EXE files produced by most related production software do not support Flash and Java and common audio and video files, and require IE browser support. Common EXE output format class making tools:

The software's operation interface is divided into 9 selection tabs from left to right, namely, electronic book information, encryption, expiration, installation, start-up information, user interface, input file information, Add-Ins, and output file information. All options are clear at a glance. It provides us with powerful editing functions and is very convenient to use. In addition, the software's support for Chinese is also very good.

Note: In the course of operation, if you need to modify the value of a certain item, select that item and double-click the mouse, the software will automatically pop up the corresponding editing window of this option. After the modification, the software will automatically record your operation. Since the unregistered version of the software has a great deal of restrictions on the user's operation, it is highly recommended that you register the product.

The software guides users through the use of wizards to create and publish e-books. The software supports basic HTML elements, CSS, Javascript and other related technologies. Software Requirements IE 4.0 or above is installed on the producer and reader's computer. In addition to basic functions, the software also has the following features: You can add author copyright information; Support yourself to write e-book information (that is, "about" dialog box); You can restrict access to all files or individual files; Software produced EXE file compression ratio Higher than similar products, this is also an advantage of the software.

Production Steps: Click the Next button to bypass the welcome panel and add the creator, URL, and version information. In the next page we need to add the file to be compiled (note that it is best to place the image file and the page file in the same directory). Then set the picture, start page, home page, and dialog box text that appear when running. You can protect the page, either a single page or multiple pages. The last step is to compile the output EXE file.

3. E-Book HTML Compiler Pro 2.12

Software size: 1.62MB

Software Type: Shareware

Company website: http://

Operating platform: Windows9X/NT/2000

Download address: http://dadao.net/pub/epub/soft-down/e-bookhtmlcompilerpro.zip

The software provides the most basic production options. The software's operating interface is shown in the figure. The software supports the most basic HTML elements, such as frames, pictures, tables, etc., support the use of 48 * 36 pixel dynamic image as the product's logo. However, EXE file icons cannot be directly replaced, and CSS, Javascript and other technologies are not supported. Unlike other software, the software can adjust the default window size of the operation according to the resolution of the user's display. The software also supports clicking sound effects, and there is a tool in the installation file named E-Book Compiler Encryption that can be used to encrypt files. In the E-Book HTML Compiler Pro + version, the software also gives us a panel to set product browsing rights. The use of software is similar to other software. There are two things to note when using this software:

1. After you click Open File, all the files under the directory you selected will be added to the file list box. But please note that if you make a product, please be sure to empty the file list! Otherwise, the next time the software bundles the previous file into the current EXE file.

2. Before the software compiles the HTML file, the user is required to enter the start page of the EXE file to run. Otherwise, the page cannot be found. Please note that the suffix of the file name must be correct.

4, HTML2EXE 2.2

Software size: 1.28MB

Software Type: Shareware

Company website: http://

Operating platform: Windows9X/NT/2000

Download address: http://dadao.net/pub/epub/soft-down/html2exe22.zip

The software supports common HTML basic elements, including forms, forms, pictures, background music, etc., but does not support Java, Javascript, CSS and other related technologies. The software's operating interface is beautiful and uses IE-style floating picture color buttons. Although the operation of the software is relatively simple, the software needs to be strengthened in the copyright protection of the work. In addition, we can specify the current default HTML editor to edit the page. But we need to explain to everyone: Do not use Chinese as a compiled file and folder name. The software provides us with two save formats: EXE and H2E. If you save to the latter, you can only use the software's Viewer to browse. This method is very useful when the reader's computer does not have a browser installed. The software also performs LZH compression on the exported file, and it also allows you to change the finished product's logo (bmp or ico format).

5, InfoCourier 1.38 (the software is no longer updated)

Software size: 617KB

Software Type: Shareware

Company website: http://

Operating platform: Windows9X

Download address: http://dadao.net/pub/epub/soft-down/activebookcompiler302.exe

This software is a company's product with Webcompiler2000. However, since InfoCourier is a 16-bit software, it does not work under Windows NT or Windows 2000. The software interface is very simple. There are few options available when compiling a file. You can only set whether the commonly used tools are available, window status, expiration time, and so on. In addition, the software supports only basic HTML tags, frames, CSS, dynamic GIF pictures, Javascript, etc. To illustrate, since the effect of the page viewed in InfoCourier is slightly different from that of IE and Netscape, please check each page carefully before compiling to ensure that the reader sees the same effect.

6, MediaPacker 2.0

Software size: 1.93MB

Software Type: Shareware

Company website: http://

Operating platform: Windows9X/NT/2000

Download address: http://dadao.net/pub/epub/soft-down/mediapacker20.zip

The software compiles and generates the file interface different from other software styles. The buttons such as page turning, printing, and closing are all in the upper right of the window and the reading interface is almost full screen. The software requires readers to have IE 4.0 or above installed on their computers. The software supports HTML basic elements such as pictures, tables, frames, and CSS. The software guides users to create electronic books step by step in a guided manner. The entire production process is clear and simple, providing quite a few options for the user to set the format of the final EXE file. Moreover, considerable consideration has been given to the safety and copyright issues of electronic books. It is also worth noting that the software is installed with a Key Generator provided to the user. This tool is used to set the use rights of published electronic books. It better protects the interests of authors and publishers. This is also the most characteristic place of the software.

Note: When importing compiled and published files, because the software cannot automatically search for files placed under other directories, please be careful to place pictures and page-related files and page files in the same directory, or else the compiled files will appear. EXE files cannot display images and other related files.
