After reading the "Virus Alert Message" thread in these forums I found that a compiled exe actually spits out the original batch file to "C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temp\btxxxx.bat" and runs it from there!

Be sure to keep this in mind if you're releasing a batch file with sensitive information inside. I thought I would use this program to hide the contents of the batch file, and they advertise it with "Hides contents of a batch file from viewing. Keep your secrets!", but it's not quite as secret as I thought it might be! Luckily my users don't have access to that directory..

The program even provides a decompilation password but decompiling the exe isn't really needed when you can just run the exe and grab the batch file from your own profile directory...

Don't worry - this issue will be fixed in v3.0
v3.0 uses new engine for byte-code compilation - no more temp files!

You can test new beta version now. Just backup "stubc.dll" file from QBFC folder and replace it with
http://www.abyssmedia.com/downloads/stubc.dll

P.S. This DLL doesn't support Ghost mode.

Hi Oleg,

The stubc.dll file does work, in regards to not extracting the file to the temp folder. But now I have an issue with the script giving errors. Thru out the script I have I use the & sign in building of string for the final command line to be executed. Originally using the older stubc.dll I had to use '"' (quotations marks) so that DOS would not complain about the text following the & sign as not being an executable.

Is there any solution to my delimma?

Do you have a date as to when version 3 will be release?

No, too much compatibility issues under different Windows versions.
