Exe to Msi Converter Free

CNET Editors' review

QwertyLab's Exe to Msi Converter Free is a simple tool that converts a setup executable file (EXE) into a Windows Installer Package (MSI) that can be distributed and installed on other PCs. It automatically detects the type of installer and lets users add command-line arguments. It's a simple tool that does a simple thing that is very useful to those who need it.

Exe to Msi Converter Free's interface is a small dialog offering two entry fields, one for browsing to or entering the Setup Executable and another for adding arguments. Aside from a Web link to the developer's site and three buttons, that's all there is to this tool. There's no Help file, but one is hardly needed since Exe to Msi is practically automatic. We browsed to our Downloads folder and selected an executable at random. We clicked Build MSI, which converted our selected file and saved the new file to the same directory as its source. When we clicked Test Installer, the program initiated our new Windows Installer file, which opened normally and began the process of installing our selected software. Clicking Cancel terminated the process, if we were quick enough.

Exe to Msi Converter Free is just the sort of small, free tool that does something extremely useful when you need it. Maybe you don't need it or won't need it now, but if you should happen to, you'll be glad we told you about it.

    "Great program!"

    January 16, 2014  |   By phly95

    Version: Exe to Msi Converter Free 2.0

    Pros

    Works with any exe file I've tried. You can even convert something like Sonic.EXE and it'll run flawlessly as if you were playing the game with the original exe. This is great for bypassing exe blockers in libraries and such.

    Cons

    You can't run installers if the computer has an exe blocker and you can't direct it to a folder with all the other files which means if you want to play most games, you're screwed. The exe will open flawlessly, but it will be like if it wasn't in the same folder as the rest of the files, which is a real bummer.

    Summary

    If you want to get past exe blockers and your game is a single exe file (no installers or file dependencies) then you're in luck. If it's an installer or needs to be in a specific folder, you're out of luck.
