Audio/ Video To EXE
Convert audio and video files to self-playing EXEs

Audio/ Video To EXE is a free tool which can convert almost any audio or video file to a self-playing executable.

That is, you start with Video.mp4, but end with Video.exe. Run that file on any PC running XP or later and it'll play, no codecs or other player required. And as a possible bonus, it's much more difficult for others to convert, edit or do anything else with the source movie.

The program is extremely basic, and you'll figure out what to do in seconds. Click File > Open, choose your target audio or video file; click Converter > Create EXE, select a destination folder, and that's it: you're finished.

Audio/ Video To EXE has several bonus tools. including an audio/ video file format creator, an ID3 tag editor, and a module to cut audio or video files without re-encoding them. They're also horribly basic and can't even begin to compete with the best freeware. Audio/ Video To EXE is portable, though, and so they might come in useful if you need to convert an audio or video file on someone else's PC (for example).


Audio/ Video To EXE worked as advertised on our test PC, turning various media files into stand-alone executables which all played correctly. The main problem is this free build doesn't have a player console, so you can't pause and resume playback, jump forwards or back, or do anything other than sit and watch. The program window doesn't even disappear when it's finished playing; you're left to press Esc or close it manually.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
