April 6, 2010 | Filed under Software;
The good old DOS commands are never obsolete because it enables a user to run multiple commands and actions by putting all of them into one batch file. Batch programming can get very advanced if you know a little programming. Perhaps you might have created a very useful and advanced batch script and want to release it to public but doesn’t want people to look at your code. Editing a batch file is very easy as no decompiling is involved and all you need to do is load it in your Notepad.
One way to protect your batch codings from being leaked is by converting the BAT to EXE file. An executed file can be reverse engineered to get to code but it is not easy. Hence this is a very good method in protecting your batch script in the first place. Advanced BAT to EXE Converter offers a very easy and simple way to convert your batch scripts to .EXE files. Even the most complex batch files can be converted to executables!
All you need to do is paste the batch commands to the dialog box and then click on the File menu and select Build EXE. You then specify the location to save the EXE file to and then you get to change the icon and set the version info. There are 2 versions of Advanced BAT to EXE Converter which is the free and the PRO version. The free version allows you to run the compiled exe file on other computers except it has an advertisement splash screen before the real batch commands are executed. The PRO version removes the advertisement screen at the beginning before processing the batch commands.
We have tested building an advanced Stars Batch Example from the menu and ran the compiled EXE on Windows 7. It worked flawlessly.
