Default about cab and exe files

One of the most frequently request i think is this: "Is there any way to convert cab or exe files into .xap ones?"
I haven't found anything about. Can you help me understanding if there is a possibility for this problem? I have an important app in .exe format i would install on my Samsung Omnia 7. Can you help me?
Tnx from south Italy.

I think the main problem is not the underlying OS, but the GUI is completely different. To put it simply, 6.5 and under had a different way of handling how apps looked and reacted on screen.
