Hi thank you for posting this information it is just a little bit above me at this time but I will look into more what this can do for me and others. When you are a beginner you start with the easy and work up to harder things and I am just wanting to learn more things. From Louise and Hawk

Anyway, this is helpful and interesting information. I have heard nothing about this till now.It is good to know that the blind Jaws users can create such file without using Winrar for example.

An Exe file, or a file with the ".exe" extension, is a type of
executable file commonly used with Windows operating systems. The Exe
file is one of the
most useful files in Windows, as it is commonly used to install or run
programs. Nearly all installers will be packaged as executables, and
many small
software programs (such as the games included with Windows) run
entirely out of Exe files. If you need to package a program or a
script for distribution
or installation, you will need to learn how to make an Exe file
yourself. Fortunately, Windows comes with a built-in utility for
packaging executables,
and using it is fairly simple.

1. Run the iExpress application in Windows. IExpress is a utility that
is included with Windows, and it provides an easy way to package your
program as an
executable. To run the program, press the "Start" button and then
click "Run." In the dialog box, type "iexpress.exe" and press the
Enter key. If you use
Windows Vista, you can just press the "Start" button and begin typing
"iexpress," and the program's icon will appear in the search results.
2. Specify that you want to create a new executable. When the iExpress
program launches, you will be asked to choose between opening an
existing executable
or creating a new one. Choose to create a new one by selecting the
radio button that reads, "Create new self extraction directive file."
3. Specify the type of executable package you want to create. The next
screen will ask you to choose between 3 options for the action that
should be taken
when a user opens your Exe file. The first is to extract the files and
then run an additional command (for instance, to make changes to the
The second is to extract the files only (this is the recommended
option). The third option is only applicable for distributing Active-X
4. Give your installer package a title. The next screen will ask you
to specify the title for your executable package. This is not the
filename for the Exe
file; this is the title that will appear across the top of all windows
opened by the installer.
5. Choose a confirmation prompt for your Exe file if desired. The next
screen in iExpress will allow you to specify a text prompt given to
the user upon opening
the executable. If you don't wish to provide a prompt, check the radio
button that reads "No prompt."
6. Specify the license agreement governing the use of your executable.
The next screen will allow you to choose a license agreement for your
software. The
installer will inform the user that the agreement you pick governs the
use of the software. To display a license agreement, type the
agreement into a plain
text file (using the ".txt" extension) and attach it after selecting
the radio button reading, "Display a license."
7. Select the files that your Exe file will install on the user's
computer. The next screen will allow you to choose the files that your
executable should
install; you can select as many or as few as needed. Add a file by
clicking the "Add" button and then navigating to the file's location
on your hard drive.
You will be able to see the files you've added in the iExpress window.
8. Specify the executable's filename. The next screen will ask you to
specify the filename for the Exe file; remember it must end with the
".exe" extension.
This screen also includes a check box for either hiding or showing the
full extraction process to the user.
9. Create the executable.
• Click Next to create the package.
• Click the Finish button on the final iExpress screen to compile the
Exe file and save it in the location you specified. You can test the
executable by
double-clicking on it to extract the files.
10. Another way to create EXE is ExeScript utility. Just make a simple
BAT or VBS script and convert to EXE.
