Software that can be used for conversion of xap file type to exe format.

You probably won't find any converter that could simply convert Windows Phone Apps (.xap) to Windows executables (.exe), likely to create a file that can be run on desktop computers.

However, as part of the Windows Phone SDK, there exists a Windows Phone Emulator that can be used to launch .xap app on desktop.

Another possibility related to Silverlight packages would be to create a Windows installer for a Silverlight app, with one of the dedicated installer software like Nullsoft NSIS or similar tool with which users can create installers. A direct xap to exe conversion of any sort is not likely though.
