.exe to .apk files

  pookie 08:34 16 Oct 2010


I have just got my first Android phone (v1.6). I have some programmes I'd like to install but I believe the .exe installation files have to be saved as .apx for them to be installed and work in Android. Do you know how to do this or what (free) programme can be used to save it in that format?

Many thanks

Thanks Bremner

I did search before I posted and even with your link they seem to be apk to other formats rather than eg exe to apk

Nope, still can't find a converter exe to apk. I've now tried about 10 today and they either don't do it or had viruses.

Any ideas or links to software please?

Anybody? I'm going mad here :-)

As an update, after many hours searching online, apparently it can't done as exe is windows based and apk is android based
