Develop PHP Script to EXE
Bambalam PHP EXE Compiler / Embedder is a free command line tool to convert PHP applications to standalone Windows .exe applications. The exe files produced are totally standalone with no need for php dlls etc. The php code is encoded using the Turck MMCache Encode library. It’s a perfect solution if you want to distribute your application to Windows users while protecting your source code at the same time. The converter is also suitable for producing .exe files for windowed PHP applications (created using, for example, the WinBinder library). It’s also good for making stand-alone PHP Socket servers/clients (using the php_sockets.dll extension).

2. PHP Apollo
PHP Apollo is a free command-line tool that converts a PHP script into an executable, as a compiler can do (but this is not a PHP compiler). The executable may works on any computer without the need to install PHP. A part of the interpreter is already included into the executable to run your PHP code.
Wapache is a software that lets you to create desktop applications using web development technology. It combines a modified version of the Apache 2 HTTP server with an embedded Internet Explorer web browser.
PHC-WIN is a windows application that allows one to create EXEs from PHP code. The PHP code is first converted to PHP bytecode using bcompiler, and then embedded into an EXE using embeder. Compiling the code into bytecode has two benefits: it speeds up load times since the PHP code doesn’t have to be interpreted, and it obfuscates the code so that it cannot be easily reverse engineered.
WinBinder is a new open source extension for PHP, the script programming language. It allows PHP programmers to easily build native Windows applications.
