Batchrun 4.3
Build up a batch file quickly using Batchrun

Batch files enable you to automate repetitive tasks quickly and easily, but these require coding by hand using Notepad or another text editor, and things can quickly become confusing for less experienced users or those who keep needing to look up command-line references as they go.

Batchrun eliminates the need for typing commands in by hand thanks to its more user-friendly approach. Install and launch the program, and you can quickly build a set of batch commands using the supplied drop-down menus and file selection boxes.

The process is relatively simple: launch the program and select the type of command (Run, copy, rename, make folder, delete, delete folder, end process, kill process or copy text to the clipboard). Select the file or enter file-based variables to perform this task on, input parameters, set a priority level and – if applicable – choose a working directory. You can also opt to delay the task or run the selected program minimised, maximised or using its normal window if applicable. Once done, click Add to add subsequent commands. Commands can be dragged and dropped to sort them in a different order if necessary, and individual commands can be tagged with a “Wait to kill” option that pauses the batch file until the program launched is closed by the end user.

It’s also possible to launch dial-up connections using a combination of the Run command and the rasphone.exe file – full instructions can be found inside the program’s help files.

Batch files can be saved to the desktop for easy access, to the startup folder so they launch with Windows or executed directly from the program. A portable version is also available.

Version 4.3 adds support for using environment variables (e.g. %programfiles%) in batch files, and improves the program's general support for 64-bit systems.
 

Verdict:

A competent little tool that offers a more user-friendly alternative to creating and editing batch files.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
