Bug Description

A number of drivers are only released as EXE files. ndiswrapper should allow users to install their windows driver from a windows executable, or at least give instruction on how to get the .ini file from and .exe file

this is a job for ndisgtk not ndiswrapper.
ndisgtk could use wine or cabextract to get the drivers from self-extracting exe files.

Changed in ndiswrapper (Ubuntu):
status: New → Invalid

Fair comment, hopefully the ndiswrapper team will work with ndisgtk to implement something like this.
