    .sis files are symbian files designed specifically to run on symbian OS which is the default OS in all of nokia n-series, 6630, 6600 etc.

    the .exe you mention are files/programs in windows.

    you'll have to code your own softwares/programs in symbian platform if you want them to run on your mobile phone.

    i'm afraid there's no .exe to .sis converter.

    there is a 'makesis' app but not sure whether it converts exe to app as nokia apps use *.app as their extension

    Re: please provide me a tutorial on making .sis file....

    no one cn convert .exe to .sis because both are diffrent things .sis is just a type of compression which is used in symbianOS. But u can create ur own sis files by using tools like which are given in nokia forum tools section and u can also find a tool which can create symbianOS app for u by using ur own fav IDE. Finally if u just want to create some themes then u can use theme studio which is also available on nokia forum using this u can create .sis theme file for ur phone
    __________
    U can download a utility know as unmakesis which can uncomprss sis file and extract files from it from http://www.atz-soft.com/download.html

    as pointed out earlier ... nokia appz use *.app as their extension and as said by anil *sis is only an installer something like install shield only extracts files .... u can easily make sis file using makesis ... for converting ur software to *.app search the net

    Re: please provide me a tutorial on making .sis file....

    thanks anil for ur kind answer. i didnt know that sis file is just for extracting files of an application used in symbion phones. i actually wanted to create one symbion application for my nokia 6630 from a windows application...

    i thought i can convert the file type, which will get converted to sis file and work.
    now i have to build a .app file and then put it into sis file.... quite a lenghty process i think.... do u know how to do it??? if u can help me, i am greatful to u.

    i wanted to make screamer radio(free internet radio) work on my nokia6630. so i thought of making a sis file of that. screamer radio is a great software as u all know. it works on dial up connection also flawlessly.... so the gprs connection speed of most of mobile networks is above this speed. since my phone is not having fm radio and i am not living at bangalore at present, i thought of making such application and subscribe gprs.....

    thanks for ur information.... it would be greatful if u can help me making that application work on mobile phone...waiting for ur positive response....

    no i dont knw how to create app files but i think u can create ur program in java and then use the S60 2nd edition sdk available on nokia.forum to create such program. It includes documentation, emulator, sample code and library.
