How to Convert PDF to Binary
By Elvis Michael
Converting PDF documents to an executable format allows you to share the file’s contents to a broader audience. As PDF viewers are not necessarily installed on every computer, such format ensures users can view the intended file regardless of the system’s current features. Moreover, this is particularly convenient for computers with restricted hard disk capacity and/or users with limited computing knowledge.
Download one of several third-party utilities primarily designed to convert PDF to binary. Notable examples include Apinsoft PDF to EXE Converter, PDF2EXE and Vaysoft PDF to EXE Converter.
Install the application by following the setup required instructions. This includes the selection of a default installation folder and any other program-specific features.
Launch the installed application. Click the main function or command to add the PDF file in question. This is typically achieved through the program’s “File” menu or through an “Add Files” or equivalent button.
Browse for the PDF file using the ensuing dialog screen, then double-click to import it into the application.
Convert the file to a binary format. Depending on the application, go to the “File” menu, followed by “Save As” or click “Convert” through the main user interface. Additionally, assign a destination or output location. This option is available upon clicking “Save As” or prior to clicking “Convert,” depending on the program’s interface design.
