Well, exe's are compressed by the Win32 runtime. You can theoretically use a hexeditor, but that's for advanced hexxers.

Some installation library studios have an EXE import; look around at the software that the EXE was compiled with.

I don't think WiS has an import feature.

I'm not sure if a hex edit would accomplish anything either.

Folks... EXEs are files that've been compiled into something that an OS can make sense of. They aren't meant to be edited, and the same tools and techniques that allow you to do something like change text also allow you to do some slightly less legal things. No more. :lock:
