    This sounds like what you're after, but if you've googled chances are you've seen this? Maybe I just phrased the question in a different way.
    Taken from
    "The cheap and dirty way to do this - I use the program called Total Recorder
    from, I play the exe file on my computer, and hit the
    record button on TotalRecorder. You do have to play the whole file and I am
    not THAT concerned about the quality of the sound, I think the sound quality
    of this program is fine.

    The website in question is
    Product is total recorder
    I don't know if you can test drive it.

    Assuming the audio is embedded in a standard way and is stored in the .exe and nowhere else.. You need a program that can extract resources from Windows executables. A resource can be a text string, a bitmap image, some audio, whatever and there are several programs that let you extract them.

    i went to the site, they only have a trial version that limits the file to 1 min, so thats not much good to me

    i settled for easy mp3 recorder, cheers
