    Turn a script into an .exe file?

      Hi,

       

      How can I turn a JavaScript into an .exe file (on Windows)? The

      advantage is that if the script uses only ScriptUI features, it will

      never need to launch InDesign. Additionally, it is possible to package

      it that way with a special icon that appears if it is placed on the

      desktop, and when it runs the icon appears in the taskbar.

       

      An example of what I'd look to achieve is the hyphenchecker script,

      written by the late Teus de Jong. There is one Windows-only version

      available on his website (which is still being maintained, probably by

      his son) which is an .exe file -- precisely what I'm trying to do.

       

      Thanks,

      Ariel
