Executable only file


#1

Hi,

we have a simple chromium web-app that I’d like to make available to some of our enterprise customers that are on corporate windows without rights to install new software. Could i package the app into an executable-only file so that it does not install, only runs and therefore works even on a laptop without administrator rights?

Apps produced with Electron don’t necessarily need to be installed. They’re portable by default. The docs have more details about distribution.

You’ll still have to sign the app, if you don’t want the app to install, I’d avoid electron-builder as it has installers and updaters bundled in, but electron-packager should give you what you need.
