    Is it possible to convert an exe file to a wmv file. Or something I can upload to youtube?

    Its a Wedding Slide show.

    Thanks for any help.

    It would be easier if you had the original ppt file

    Or just run a video capture program while the exe is running and save the result as whatever video format you want.

    Download the trial of WINRAR (just google it, I am tired).

    Reboot.

    Now right click on the .EXE

    You *might* get the option of extracting that file. Depends on if WINRAR thinks there is anything to extract or not.

    Extract that stuff. Within it probably won't be a WMV. But you should find files that are easier to deal with (like .GIF or .JPG) then a .exe.

    Technically you shouldn't be able to convert a .exe into anything.

    yeah... exe is not a data format... it is compiled executable code... there may be data embedded in it but good luck segregating it.

    Actually, depending on how smart you are you could open it in a hex editor and look for common image/video file headers... but yeah again good luck

    What he said.

    You need the source, whether its ppt, etc.

    probably could run it and use some of that desktop video capturing software :mamoru: that is if you can't find the original source
