5 Best Free RAR to EXE Converter Software For Windows

Here is a list of best free RAR to EXE converter software for Windows. RAR is a popular archiving format in which you can securely store files and data. However, it is not an ideal archive format if you frequently share archives with other users as they need external archive extraction software to extract RAR archives. In that case, you can use a self-extracting archive (EXE) as it does not need any external software to get extracted. If you already have multiple ZIP archives, then you can convert them to EXE using these converters and share them with other users.

Through these converters, you can easily convert one RAR archive to EXE without much hassle. Although, some converters can also convert multiple RAR archives to EXE at a time. Besides this, you can use these software to create and extract standard archives of different formats like 7Z, ZIP, TAR, WIM, and more. The process to convert RAR to EXE is quite simple in all these converters. Still, to help you out, I have included the steps of conversion in the description of each software.

In these converters, you also get many additional features like Encryption, Password Manager, Random Password Generator, and more. Go through the list to know more about these converters.
