Bat To Exe Converter 3.0.10

billon on 24 Mar 2018
  • 4MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 23 Mar 2018
  • Suggested by Cornflower

Bat to Exe Converter takes DOS or Windows batch file scripts (.bat) and converts them into executable (.exe) files. This is useful for creating shortcuts on USB flash drives along with their appropriate icons, preventing an annoying batch window from appearing, and includes encryption and decompiler features.

I realise that this is a very old thread but the update info shows v3.0.8 was released on 1st Feb 2018. I've just tested Bat_To_Exe_Converter_(x64).exe, i.e. the 64-bit portable exe of v3.0.8. I used a 2-line BAT:

echo This is a test
pause

I compiled this, together with an icon, and submitted the result to VirusTotal. I'm disconcerted to see a score of 21/66 (https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/5ac7112fae2a252a5faa72199587cea903d97194cea45934df4fd1fecc326af3/analysis/1518532866/) and thought I would share this. Whilst I was expecting a few false positives (especially from less well-known AV products), 21 red flags out of 66 seems high. Does anyone have any recommendations for a different product? I'm retired and rarely need this so hoping for both freeware and portable.

webfork on 2018-02-13 22:15

RickC: You're right to look at high VirusTotal ratios as you did, but I have tested this program many times over the years without issue. As noted earlier in the comments, programs like this will always show up on scanners.

Interesting enough - when you visit the homepage and try to download the program, the button doesn't work, it's kind of greyed out (observation as of today, 21. Feb. 2018). Disabling all blockers doesn't help. The direct download link in this entry works however.

PassMark OSFMount v2.0.1001

billon on 22 Mar 2018
  • 6MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 22 Mar 2018
  • Suggested by Stone Tablet

OSFMount is a collection of virtual drive tools that allows mounting local disk image files as a drive letter, RAM disks and mounting CD or DVD images (for simplicity or speed). Supported image types include IMG, DD, ISO, BIN, NRG, SDI, AFF, AFM, AFD, VMDK (used by VMware), VHD (Virtual PC) and more.

The program is ideal for machines without a CD/DVD drive and, as most images are bit-for-bit copies of disk partitions, many programs will treat them as the real thing, enabling programs that require a program disc. For disk images, the program can give access to these files without booting or other required visualization software. RAM disks have a variety of uses including high speed caches, programs with frequent/intense disk reads/writes and some database applications.

Command line tools are also included.

Note: The developer warns: "it is recommended that 64-bit Windows is used when large disk image files are to be mounted."

@freakazoid: CDmage is ancient, I'm surprised someone even uses it anymore... :)

skall on 2015-02-23 10:21

whenever i try to mount an image (different formats), the message 'wrong parameter' appears and the new drive is not selectable? i am using the 64bit version and have admin rights.

any hints what might cause this?

i might be wrong, but it seems like this is the only up to date portable virtual cdrom software for win8.1?

Portable Reviewer on 2015-09-15 12:36

@Midas CDmage works like a charm unlike PassMark OSFMount despite "being ancient". Nothing ancient about it. PassMark OSFMount couldn't detect my image file properly as @freakazoid experienced. In fact very few free portable mount tools could handle my image file properly. I'm surprised you don't use CDmage to mount......

"Run jcpicker.exe /ini and then close the program"
How do you Run that? In the folder there is an exe and an ini file, but not an exe /ini.

Midas on 2018-01-22 07:27

Type '[Windows key]+R', drag and drop 'jcpicker.exe' into the "Run" dialog, edit the the character string you just placed in the "Open" field, adding " /ini" at the end, click the "OK" button and presto... it's called a "Command Line Parameter".

"ESE is notably a core of Microsoft Exchange Server and Active Directory. Its purpose is to allow applications to store and retrieve data via indexed and sequential access. Windows Mail and Desktop Search in the Windows Vista operating system also make use of ESE to store indexes and property information respectively."

Qupzilla is getting a little memory hungry. I have removed this from my favorites list.

If you want a barebones browser that uses little memory, I would recommend the latest version of K-Meleon.

smaragdus on 2017-02-04 16:56

@billon
At first look QupZilla version 2.1.0 seems to have improved significantly compared to version 2.0.2, but it uses far more resources compared to version 1.8.9. I did just a brief testing.

freakazoid on 2017-02-11 22:46

I can confirm what smaragdus said about v2.1.0.

Memory usage hovers around 120-140 MB RAM, but that is to be expected when the core engine is now updated to use QtWebEngine, which is powered by Chromium. To compare, I had an older version of Qupzilla v1.8.6 lying around and that used 210 MB RAM.

It's a good alternative to the existing Chromium-powered browsers, but if you're using a Chromium backend, you might as well use Chromium so you can gain access to the wealth of available extensions out there rather than some homebrewed versions that come with QupZilla.

I used Universal Extractor to open the installer, then copied the {app} folder to my PortableApps directory on my USB drive. I renamed it to Artweaver and created the .ini file. Seems to run just fine! I guess the {embedded} directory contains license files and so forth; not necessary to run the program. Very nice!

@foxcole: click the link in 'how to extract.', you need to replace bin/innounp.exe with the latest version, yours only supports versions up to 5.1.1. Innounp version 0.36 supports unpacking version 5.4.2 Inno Setup installers.
Worked for me.

Better report your problems at the forum, the developer usually responds to bug reports and other issues. Of course you are not dumb. Did you change the initial location of StackNotes folder- it remembers the location of the last used file.

Software is certified by SoftPedia as beeing "Clean of virus, spywares, adwares". The reason why it was reported as beeing "potentially malicious" at SourceForge was due to the AES encryption command line tool included with the package. This tool is no more distributed with the package and can optionnaly be downloaded from the "AES Crypt" website if needed.

Although I've been more focused on Bvckup 2 for Windows (due to the delta copy feature), DirSync Pro comes in handy on occasions and is far and away my favorite sync program on Mac.

I like this player a lot. I love that it can be setup to use relative paths for the music folder (I had to edit the config file for this). My only gripe so far is that it will not read the coverart from the ID3 tags... it only looks at the art in the folders.
