Softpedia Editor's Review for Advanced BAT to EXE Converter
Convert batch-script files to EXE format with mouse input and other unique
Written by Elena Opris on April 18th, 2013
Advanced BAT to EXE Converter is a powerful tool designed for creating EXE files from the BAT format, as the name implies. It primarily addresses users with some minimal experience in programming languages.
The interface of the application is represented by a standard window with an uncomplicated layout. Loading a Batch file into the working environment can be done by using either the file browser or "drag and drop" method.
Before turning the files into executables, you may be interested in configuring some options; you can easily insert some command lines to manipulate the EXE's behavior.
For instance, it can bring up a window and request the user's input through a file browser or folder view. But you may also change the color of the text displayed on the screen, or make the compiled Batch file window turn invisible and run in the background.
Additionally, you can set the EXE to multiply two numbers and return the result in a specific variable or to wait a certain number of milliseconds before continuing, just to name a few command lines.
Advanced BAT to EXE Converter integrates two wizards for commands and graphics. Plus, you can use the Cut, Copy, Paste and Undo functions, together with Find and Replace. Log details can be viewed on the bottom part of the screen.
The program is pretty low-demanding when it comes to the CPU and system memory, so it does not put a strain on the computer's overall performance. It has a good response time, supplies users with Batch examples they can get inspired from, and it includes a help file that explains every available command line. We have not encountered any issues throughout our evaluation; Advanced BAT to EXE Converter did not hang, crash or display error notifications.
