Advanced BAT to EXE Converter 2.91
An interesting batch file compiler and development tool

Advanced BAT to EXE Converter helps you develop useful batch files, extends their range with advanced custom commands, then compiles them into executables which will run on anything from Windows 98 upwards.

Converting your batch files in this way has all kinds of advantages. You can prevent them from being edited, for instance. They can have an icon of your choice, just like any other executable. The finished EXE files can include built-in security, so only those who know the password will be able to run them. And they'll run without that annoying command window you get with regular batch files.

This doesn't require any particular development knowledge, either. At a minimum, all you have to do is open an existing batch file, click File > Build EXE, provide an executable name and click OK > Build EXE. In a moment or two the file will appear, ready for use.

If you have even a small amount of scripting experience, though, you might appreciate Advanced BAT to EXE Converter's support for new batch file commands. There are only a few, but they're useful: you're able to accept text and mouse input, browse for files and folders, perform basic math, and more.

None of this is too surprising, of course - there are plenty of far more powerful scripting tools around. The built-in Advanced BAT to EXE Converter editor is weak, too (it makes Notepad look good). And licensing restrictions mean you can only run your compiled executables on one PC, unless you upgrade to the Pro version (from $39.95).

Still, if you just want to protect or compile the batch files on your own PC then Advanced BAT to EXE Converter is a simple way to do it, and we'd definitely recommend giving the program a look.

Verdict:

A very capable batch file compiler with lots of useful features. Just remember, you can't distribute your executables with the free version.

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.
