Default Converting CD iso to exe

sponsored links

 
I was wondering if anyone knew how to convert disks that are programs, into exe files. Like you get a copy of photoshop, and instead of having the disk, you make an exe file for better storage.

you could zip the files then make it a self extracting zip file.

I thought of that, but I have seen programs as exe programs, an install wizard comes up and everything, and the same program on a cdrom. There must be a way to do that

It's called a self extracting archive.

To convert an existing application, or CD/DVD contents, use a compression program like WinRar. (Most zip programs should also be able to do the same)
