How Web4GUI differs from usual web server?
No installation required

User can place Web4GUI based app to any folder and run it from there.


Server and all components like database server are configured each time user invokes the application.

Works even from DVD

Web4GUI-based apps can start directly of DVD/BlueRay/CD and even network drives

Invisible to firewalls on Windows

On Windows, firewalls typically prevent or ask user's confirmation for any network activity, even listening or connecting to local computer. This is not a problem for Web4GUI as they use HTTP over Named Pipes.

Autostarts special or system browser

When user invokes Web4GUI-based app, a special browser without menubars and toolbars is started. It's possible to configure Web4GUI to launch system-default browser too.

Provides GUI-based configuration tool

Web4GUI provides GUI-based app called CDBuilder for configuring and packaging apps. Actually, that app is also implemented as Web4GUI app.

Hide your static files

Web4GUI can serve static files from crypto container. Use encoders or obfuscators for server-side scripts.

Provides desktop-related API

Web4GUI provides cross-platform API required for desktop apps like picking folders, Save/Open dialogs, information about computer and about itself.

Several instances at the same time

Like with normal desktop apps, several Web4GUI-based apps can be running at the same time. Free port or socket is found at startup, so each will get different port or socket.
