Compiling a Windows Executable
Executables are compiled with a very specific version of nexe that allows access to the filesystem, which has a tricky setup procedure.
Installing the correct version of nexe
Run install_nexe_win.bat as admin on Windows, will take about 5 minutes to install fully.
Alternatively, install manually like this:
Firstly, install the general nexe globally with the command:
npm install -g nexe
In the project root folder build some executables with this version of nexe to download node binaries for Windows:
nexe . --target win32-x86-10.13.0
This will download the binaries we need for later, delete the executables built with this for now.
Now we need to install a specific version of nexe that allows access to the filesystem:
Run the command:
npm install -g cspotcode/nexe#19a5046
Now we should have the correct version of nexe for building.
Confirm by running:
Check that the version is
Compiling the exe
Run build_win32.bat on Windows to build a Windows Executable. This can be found in /dist.
To Compile Manually
To build a Windows Executable, run the command:
nexe . --target win32-x86-10.13.0 -o ./dist/gta5cleaner.exe
in the root directory of the project.
