    I am trying to run nLite to burn a bootable disc. I have a .exe file that needs to be converted to .inf inorder to be mounted onto the cd... Are there any programs out there that can convert .exe to .inf?

    Do you mean create a .inf Autorun file? I never heard of converting a .exe to .inf.

    If you want to make a Bootable disc, use Autorun Inf Editor 1.0. It's extremely simple to use. Just make sure the .exe and/or Icon are in the Root as with the created .inf file.

    Exe files are executables or simply programs, while inf files are plain text files with parameters required for installing device drivers; OR in a special case like Autorun.inf, parameters specifying what to do when you insert the CD/DVD. There is absolutely no way to convert an exe to an inf (there is no meaning in it either).

    I think as LIVEFRMNYC guessed, you are asking about autorun.inf. To execute an exe when you insert a CD/DVD you need to create a plain text file with the name Autorun.inf and place it in the root directory of the CD/DVD. It should contain the following text :

    [autorun]
    open=Program.exe
    icon=CDIcon.ico


    Give the path of the exe to run after open= and the path of the icon to be displayed after icon=. For more information about autorun.inf take a look here.
