I am looking to buy a Batch File Compiler.

What features made you buy Quick BFC over using the other shareware compilers like Batch File Compiler Professional Edition or Scriptcrypter or even the free Bat to EXE Converter program?

I personally don't know if the free bat to exe converter is a good choice since it is free and many people are using it. Could this have a higher chance of false positives?

I am pretty sure all Batch file compilers including Quick BFC and BFC Professional Edition extract files to a temporary directory. Which one is better and why?

I know about some compatibility issues with other compilers.

You right about temporary directory, but next generation of QBFC will create native applications: no temporary files, 100% secure, syntaxis checker, optimizer, debugger.

Some time ago we posted link to early alpha-version, got a lot of feedback and now working on the new beta-version.

Have tested BAT to EXE converter from F2KO. LOL! They just add batch file to the end of exe file without any encryption. Anyone can see content of your batch file in text or binary editor before execution.

This is a goooooood question. I would love to see such a thing! My C++ friend who works for Sony Online Entertainment said it is completely impossible and calls bullcrap. Unless of course... abyssmedia is going to completely re-write the Windows command interpreter by themselves. that does not sound very cost-effective to me.

Can I please see the "alpha version" that has been mentioned. I would love to do some testing. I can't find it anywhere!

Exactly! But we not need to rewrite all features of command line interpreter. We just created byte-code application, something like C# or Java and virtual machine. Script parsed and compiled to byte-code, virtual machine may execute few commands itself and other commands using native interpreter.

Step-by-step, we will implement new commands in virtual machine and final version will not depends from cmd.exe

Another possible solution - translate batch script into high-level language like Pascal or C++.

Thanks for the update.

If I have QBF license, can I request the last version of the working beta copy of the native compiler? Question

Can I know when was the last native compiler version and when was it released? Question

I might have some use of it even if its not fully completed. Smile
All I need to know is until what extent the compiler can do.

I'm tired of learning scripting since batch is so much easier to use and so much batch examples and info can be found on the internet. Surprised

The reason I wasnt into batch file much is security since all batch compilers now just extract bat to a temp a folder and execute it.

Your the first company thats actually developing a native compiler for the batch. Very Happy

Latest beta have only syntaxis analyzer and parser. It can compile script to byte-code like Visual Basic or .NET
Virtual machine that execute this byte-code still not ready, so we not have working version right now.
