Perhaps we should spell out what you mean by 'executable file '...
These zip programs will compact your files into your choice of .zip format, or as a self-executing .exe file. The advantage of the .exe being that your user does not have to have the same zip application to unzip them.
Otherwise, your compiler creates .exe files, that act more like an independent, stand-alone program.
Activ will take your html pages and compile them into a single .exe file. You can turn the copying and printing functions off to discourage users from stealing your content.
Some ebooks decompress their pages into an obscure temporary directory upon opening. The ebook then usually deletes this temp directory when closing. As an added safeguard, Activ creates those files in an encrypted format.
So, you compile your ebook from web pages into an .exe file to build an ebook, and if desired, compress it to a .zip or .exe file to save space and download times. Actually, Sunil's compilation is pretty thrifty, so you may not need the compression of the zip file.
