We are trying to convert a DOS batch file to an exe file.  The batch file is the following:

start "c:\program files\internet explorer\iexplore <internal URL>"

By clicking on the batch file it opens immediately to a specific internal IE page.  However, we need to make it into an exe and get that working.

We have tried these tools, but they haven't done the job:
bat2com
turbobat
bat2exe15

We are looking for a freeware tool that will do the job.

Thanks for your help,

Troutman

Would not a small program in Quick Basic 4.5, PDS7.1, or Power Basic something like:

chain "c:\program files\internet explorer\iexplore <internal URL>"

do?

you can hex edit bat2com and replace every com that you find with exe and then save it as bat2exe

me and a friend have done this and it worked for us.

Hi Troutman,

I just used bat2exe version 1.5 to do just that.

My batchfile in Win2K:
CMD /C START IEXPLORE http://www.experts-exchange.com/
