Unable to encrypt a .bat file.

Last Modified: 2015-07-18
I have a bat file that I want to encrypt because it has my domain username and password hard coded into it. I tried to encrypt it but I keep getting the following error.

What other methods can I try to keep this script protected and encrypted and to prevent other admins or hackers from viewing my credentials in the bat file?
