Convert a Batch File (.bat) Into an Executable (.exe) File


Description:
In this How-to-Guide i am going to be using Quick Batch File Compiler.

Convert your batch files into an actual program (.EXE format) in one click. This program may be run on Windows 2000/2003/XP/Vista/7 without any limitations. An EXE file is much harder to casually reverse-engineer, so this could be a way to conceal a particular batch file's operations from an end user. Content of your batch file will be encrypted and protected from changes.
Quick Batch File Compiler also lets you set various resources in the .EXE file, such as its description, the
company name, version information and even the application icon. In additional, you may include any files to compiled exe file and use it during execution.
