Hey guys.

Now, this could be the wrong forum, but I felt it was more coding than PSPs.

Is it possible to run a simple .exe on a CFW PSP (5.00 M33-6)? It's a pretty small file (made using C++) that needs little input. I'm just curious at the moment, but in future I might want to try putting some applications onto the PSP to try them out.

Anyone got any guides, or info into whether it's possible or not?

Much appreciated.


EDIT: Ok, so I was able to make an EBOOT from a source file using this guide. I don't have a clue how to make my own code into EBOOTs though, so I'm going to go a way and learn a bit more. I'll be back eventually.

It is possible though.

I was not fired. sozo.gif

Pretty sure that .exe is native to Windows.

This. AFAIK the .exe files are the same files in the PSP as a BOOT file (AKA .exe = BOOT for PSP). Havent tried running a .exe on a PSP though, easiest way to find out is put a .exe file on the PSP and try to run it.

Forced? Would it be so bad?

Me too.

Oh crap, I hope this is a troll...

No, you can't. You never will be able to even if all it does is say "HELLO WORLD!!"

You cant. Unless you can code the exe into a BOOT file. Also you have to have a CFW PSP.

Ok, understood, I guess what I mean is, is there anyway to convert it into a format that will work on a PSP.

A little bit harsh...

How would I go about coding into a BOOT file? I've got a CFW PSP.

If you have the C++ code, you could compile it to a form that runs on PSP. That is, if you can even FIND a C++ compiler for PSP.
