Reg2exe 2.25a / 2.30 Beta 1

Lightweight and portable application that allows you to convert Registry files to executable items via the Explorer right-click menu
Reg2exe is a straightforward piece of software that quickly creates executable files from Windows Registry items. It can be handled even by users with limited experience in software tools.

Installation is not a prerequisite, so you can run Reg2exe from any location on the hard disk.

You can also save it to a USB flash disk or similar storage unit, in order to run it on any machine with minimum effort.

What's important to keep in mind is that files are not left behind on the hard disk after removing the utility.

The interface is based on a very small frame with just two buttons. All you have to do is click "Register" to integrate the conversion command in the Windows Explorer context menu. It is necessary to register Reg2exe every time you move the file to a different location.

From this point on, you can convert registry files via the context menu. Their EXE counterparts are delivered to the same folder. In order to remove the tool, all you have to do is unregister it.

Reg2exe rapidly finishes a conversion job and works well. We haven't come across any issues in our tests, since the tool did not hang or crash. However, Reg2exe is a pretty old application and it is not compatible with newer operating systems.
