    BAT to EXE - one that works well and is free?

    Hi all

    Its possibly the age old question but does any of you know of a decent batch file to exe converter tool?

    All the ones I've tried so far [and there does appear to be many] either think the working directory is in C:\windows\temp, or the thing is only an eval converter and puts a disclaimer up first with a press any key...

    Not much good for automated stuff really is it? lol

    I'll have a look at all suggestions.

    Many thanks
    Nath.

    You could bite the bullect and convert your scripts to AutoIt. I just love it!

    Is there a particular reason you want to convert your scripts?

    I agree, go with AutoIT. It is so much more powerful than a standard batch script.

    There is, and its all the usual reasons lol

    I've looked at AutoIT a very long time ago, and I just couldnt get into it for some reason.

    I'll give it another whirl maybe.

    Any other suggestions folks?

    Alternatively, if you don't mind dabbling in KiXtart then have a look at kix2exe

    Yep - I use kix for the printers on the domain(s)... but only very very minimally lol

    Either way it seems I'll have to either learn another scripting system or keep hunting lol *cry*
