Batch convert exe files to zip files

I have a few hundred compressed files in self extract exe format. Each exe file contains 8 small files in graphic design format: jpeg, .ai, .eps, .pdf etc..

I need a way to batch process them all to .zip.

Any ideas?

Can you upload a sample of one of the EXE files?

What self extract technology / utility was used to create the EXEs?

Do you want each EXE to generate a separate ZIP, or all files from all EXEs in a single ZIP?

What ZIP tool do you have available, or does it not matter?  Could 7Zip be used?

Many folders with an exe file within. Need each exe converted to a zip.

Procedure:

FolderA
filea.exe convert to filea.zip

FolderB
fileb.exe convert to fileb.zip

FolderC
filec.exe convert to filec.zip

EXE upload not allowed by EE.
Just rename the extension to TXT and then upload it.
