BAT to EXE Converter, as the name suggests, is a free tool for converting BAT files into EXE files. BAT (or “batch”) files are essentially a list of commands that are executed in sequence, saving the user the effort of typing each command out in turn. Unfortunately, not all use-cases are compatible with BAT files, which is where BAT to EXE Converter comes in.
Similar programs like Advanced BAT to EXE Converter offer the same functionality, but this app has gained popularity through its simple interface and effective results. That being said, there aren’t as many options and features. This app can also be paired with Gilisoft EXE Lock for extra security.
Simplify custom execution scripts
A batch file can be used for a number of things, such as calling several EXE files, calling an EXE file with lengthy arguments (so the user doesn’t need to type them out every time), or just for adding some onscreen feedback for an ongoing process. Unfortunately, there are situations—often related to macro keyboards—where calling a batch file is not possible.
BAT to EXE Converter can convert your batch file into a standard executable that you will be able to run from almost all possible situations on your computer. This can also add a layer of security since a batch file is stored in plain text and can be easily viewed, whereas an executable cannot. Ideal for sensitive operations.
Safe to use and customisable
While some alternatives have more options, there are still plenty of options to tweak in BAT to EXE Converter, such as being able to include additional files and folders, make visible or invisible applications, make your EXE file portable or encrypted, and more.
There has been concern from some users about the safety of the application, largely due to anti-virus software flagging the app as malicious. This is down to the way the app works, and as long as it is downloaded from a reputable source, there should be no danger of malicious activity on your computer.
