Is there program that can convert html files to exe files. It must support html5 and read and write files. It must be free. I don't want learn a new programming language to do what I want it to do and take a million years to learn. And not even work. :x Is this a tall order?

I don't think this is a thing, nor do I think it ever will be. Just learn C++, or whatever. It'll pay off in the long run.

Look kiddo, what you want to do is impossible. If you want to make exe files you have to use a language that compiles down to something the computer can understand.

However you have an alternative. Apps for Windows 8 can be made using only HTML5 + JS, if you're into that.

Programming is hard work, drop the attitude and grab a book.

What attitude? Pretty simple question he asked. I'm still amazed by people who come on to a forum like this and then get pissy when a question is asked. I'm thinking you're the only one with the attitude.

Brandan came off as being a little whiny.

You know, you yourself are coming off as having an attitude to. Flaming another user won't get anyone anywhere.

Define whiny. I have no problem with what the OP said. Actually, nobody else really seems to have a problem with his question. Did he even make a single complaint? There are people on this forum from all around the world, maybe English isn't his native language. He might just come off that way because he's not fluent in our language.

And yes, flaming wont get anyone anywhere, so why does Cyanboy want to flame this kid? The rudeness started with him bud, I'm just pointing it out.

Before you respond to me again I want you to chill. Okay?

I am not trying to be rude or anything, I am just trying to avoid a flame war.

Yes Cyanboy started by flaming. But as my Mom used to say, it doesn't matter who started it. It matters who finishes it. Cyanboy hasn't responded to this thread since. All the flaming that has happened has been from you.

Not saying Cyanboy is in the right by flaming. I am just saying I can understand his position a bit more than yours.

Lets look at Brandan's post:

"I don't want to learn a new programming language"
This comes off as being lazy. If you are lazy then don't expect to have an easy time programming.

"And not even work."
This shows he isn't even trying to make it work, again laziness.

Have a nice day!
