@outskirter: I had the same problem while testing the latest version (MS Sans Serif font isn't really ClearType friendly); solved with ResHack by finding all instances of 'MS Sans Serif' and replacing them with 'MS Shell Dlg'...

Was testing some Notepad alternatives the other night, and while TED Notepad is relatively small in size, it uses almost 4x the memory (hovering around 9MB). Just a FYI.

Is it stealth?

Bat To Exe Converter 3.2.0.0

billon on 9 Aug 2019
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 30 Jul 2019
  • Suggested by Cornflower

Bat To Exe Converter takes DOS or Windows batch file scripts (.bat and .cmd) 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.

NOTE: Due to impossibility of obtaining program without external dedicated downloader, linking to Softpedia.

Category:
Runs on:Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the "Portable" version, either Bat_To_Exe_Converter.exe or Bat_To_Exe_Converter_(x64).exe (for 64-bit OS) to a folder of your choice and launch.

The download link on the page for version 3.1.00 links to a Softpedia page from which you can download version 3.2.0.0, either as an exe installer or as Bat_To_Exe_Converter.exe or as Bat_To_Exe_Converter_(x64).exe as binaries). There are no zip files. The version number and the "How to extract" instructions need modification to reflect this.

@AndTheWolf: thanks for the notification, entry updated to remove the extract step.

Thanks for making this BGM. I think I may have come across this in one of its earlier version. After re-testing it has now replaced Numculator as my go-to calculator due to the swiftness of its launch.

Specular on 2019-05-21 10:17

@billion any idea where I could find the changelog for 1.8+? Could only source up to 1.7 on the documentation site.

billon on 2019-05-21 11:44

@Specular:

v1.8 wasn't announced even on DonationCoder
Maybe v1.9 changelog is summary for 1.8 too?
Or maybe BGM himself can clear this?

Of the 2017 utilities, I use this one and Calculor the most.

Updated, thanks!

Thanks for re-adding this great little app. I'll let the group know if it ever doesn't work on an OS that I am aware of. So far, so good.
