Image Writer for Windows

What the heck? No .exe file included!

Asked by Bob on 2012-11-10

So I download the .zip file, extract the files to a non-zip folder, and when I open it, there are a bunch of random files and a folder called "src". So I open said folder and a bunch more random files show up with another folder called "images", which is just a bunch of pictures. No .exe file anywhere. ANYWHERE! I looked one-by-one multiple times and even re-downloaded the program 3 times and tried not extracting the files. No matter what I did, there was no executable to be spoken of. Please help.

You've downloaded the source code. You want to click the second green link button that ends in "source.zip".

Well, Trev's half right. :-) You most likely have downloaded the source distribution - you want to download the one that ends in "binary.zip" - NOT the one that ends in "source.zip" (which, I know is what Trev meant...)

Yeah, that's what I meant.

(That's what happens when you are doing too many things at once!)

Can you help with this problem?
