    Guys, one simple question that I can't find a working answer from Google (yet)...how to convert an .exe file to an .iso file...is there any freeware program that can easily help me do this?

    Take note, I said exe to iso, not the other way round. Thanks in advance to anyone who can answer this. :D

    Hi Safeguy,
    I don't think that is possible.

    Can you please give some more details on what you want to do?
    Why would you want to convert an exefile to an ISO file?
    I see an ISO file as a container. The container can contain files. Do you want to create an ISO file which contains the exefile? If so, then you can try for example UltraISO.

    Edit: Here is a freeware software that can also create ISO images from any files and folders:

    as "4yotasan" mentioned, there is no "conversion" involved.

    consider iso like .rar format. the original file is enclosed in an iso file thats all.

    more specifically, iso format is aimed at storing the disc structure of CD/DVD etc, rather than just storing files.

    It is not possible to convert an exe into an iso, sadly.
