    O.K., I bought a new pc game and i want to share it but it takes up too much space in my hard drive. since, i share so many programs im taking up a lot more space, so i decided to compress them into a ".exe" file(how some people have it in kazaa). I dont know how to compress it into a ".exe" file or know a program that could do it for me. So may someone please help me!?!?!?


    Thanks!!!
    :cheers:

    That game isn't a .exe file in itself? :?:
    how r u going to compress a .exe file into a .exe file? :confused:

    anyways WinZip 8.1 helps you save your archives as .exe files.

    i was going to compress the whole game, all the files not only the .exe file...and thanks never knew the winzip did that.

    that was the quickest answer ive seen!!

    if it is compressed with an .exe (executable) on the end it means that it is a sfx (self extracting) file. I would recomend winRAR since .rar has better compression than .zip

    .exe is not a form of compression...basically it is a program extension

    winRAR will also open a wide assortment of other compressions...where as winZIP can only open .zip files...or at least that is the way it was the last time I used winzip
    I've gone too far and need to move on!
