I think you said, or somebody did, that the file is convert.exe. I just
Find the file in your directory, with Dolphin or whatever your file
(I assume you have unzipped it. If not, then, in a console, cd to the
the .zip file is, and type unzip convert.zip and it will create the
convert.exe file.) You can
leave it where it is, or move it where you'd like. I found the file in
Dolphin--it IS a Windows
program--and I right clicked on it and said copy. then I pasted it on
my desktop. Snap on
the icon on your desktop and it should open. Mine does.
