How to Convert EXE(ebook) to PDF?


I have an ebook which is saved as exe and we need a key to open this file..
I have the legal key and when i use the key, it opens in Adobe reader.
Now what i want to do is, i want to export it to normal pdf so that i can open in my favorite Foxit reader and also in my mobile..

I googled a lot but couldn't find any solution to this.

Any help in this matter will be highly appreciated

Theoretically, you can grab what's visible on the screen and ocr it but its too much trouble.

Re: How to Convert EXE(ebook) to PDF?

Try checking the temp folders on the users and the windows folder, while the book is open, to see if the book is cached there. I have been able to extract stuff out this way from some exe auto runs.

Re: How to Convert EXE(ebook) to PDF?

I checked temp folder but wasn't able to find it..also we cannot print it too
And since the book is ~120 pages...taking screenshot of everypage is extremely tedious!

Re: How to Convert EXE(ebook) to PDF?

unless you make an app for it

ok., another way out: Since the app needs adobe reader to display, does it run if you don't have adobe reader installed?

Re: How to Convert EXE(ebook) to PDF?

Is the ebook with pictures or only text, if only text then have you tried to copy the text?
You must get some other acrobat software than the adobe reader to do that. like foxit or others.

Re: How to Convert EXE(ebook) to PDF?

aha!
then try replacing the AcroRd32.exe with another standalone pdf tool ( copy another pdf application like Foxit Reader.exe into the path where you have installed Acrobat Reader and rename the latter as AcroRd32.exe)

@ Manish. He has tried to, I am certain but none of them can open the exe file directly I guess. The program loads each page one at a time in memory and runs it throgh Adobe reader. it probably gets the installed path of the reader through the registry, in which case, it may be possible to force it to use a less restrictive PDF reader.

You cant , here's why :
The Reverse Code Engineering Community • View topic - Secure-eBooks - any chance to unlock?

unless ofcourse you can decrypt the MD5 algorithm . A Supercomputer would be a good place to start .

Re: How to Convert EXE(ebook) to PDF?

The only option i can see is OCR'ing , the file loads its own adobe plugin so you cant do anything about that .
