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.

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.

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

I compiled this, together with an icon, and submitted the result to VirusTotal. I'm disconcerted to see a score of 21/66 ( 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.

FYI, contrary to Checker above, Wallax is testing the whole ZIP download package, not the B2EC executable...

Wallax: Not coming up that way on my side. Please post about possible virus stuff in forums.

I'm preparing my own portables with batch codes and this compiler.

Check out new versions coming with extended commands. Not just a batch compiler, makes batch files one step closer to programming languages.

Become absolutely best in its category!

The nature of this kind of applications always produces false positive.
It's 4 out of 55 ( ) = 7,27%

i'm using this tool for a very long time now.
my kaspersky av, which is one of the best, has never detected a threat.
virustotal is just a shitty false-positve detection service, that makes brainless fools like TTwrs fall for it.

@DarkShadow: Of course I have. But 16 'potentials' out of 55 tests (29%) seems way too risky to me, especially when there are alternatives. Each to his own...


DarkShadow 2014-08-23 21:11

@TTwrs: probably never heard about false positives ?
