How to make a bat executable

Batch file

A .BAT file can be made into a .EXE or .COM file to keep the program's source hidden from a user. We recommend users use the file to convert their batch files.

Once this file is downloaded, unzip the file and double-click the file to open the program. In this program, you can point to the batch file you want to convert into an executable file, include additional files, change the icon of the file, and add file details.

If you want to keep the file hidden from the user while the batch file is executing, check the Ghost application option. However, make sure all pause statements are removed from the batch file or it will remain in memory as b2e.exe.

Alternative solution

Users running earlier versions of MS-DOS and Windows can use the file, which is a program that converts your batch files into a .com file.

Once the file is downloaded, move the file into the same directory as your batch file and type a command similar to the example below.

bat2exe myfile.bat
