I think you said, or somebody did, that the file is convert.exe. I just 
installed it.
Find the file in your directory, with Dolphin or whatever your file 
manager is.
(I assume you have unzipped it.  If not, then, in a console, cd to the 
directory where
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.
