Convert Scripts into Secured Executable Files
Make your BAT, VBS, JScript, WSF, WSH, and HTA scripts easy to run and secure to distribute by converting them into stand-alone Windows executables! Supporting a number of scripting and command-line languages.
Q. My vbs or js script is unpacked into a temporary folder. Why?
A. Specify Execution Type = Compile in the script options. In this case, the script will not be unpacked. ExeScript Host technology will be used to run it instead. It is the most secure way to run the script, nobody will be able to extract valuable information, everything is encrypted, etc. ExeScript is the only program of this kind that makes it possible not to unpack the script to a folder. However, there are some limitations concerning the use of some WScript elements. See the article ExeScript Host Language for details.
Q. My exe file is too large. Can I make it smaller?
A. Clear the Version Info checkbox, set Icon Type = No Icon. It is impossible to make the file smaller than that because strong encryption is used and the exe file contains the data and procedures necessary for working with the encrypted script.
Q. I just don't understand what Work Directory is for? What if Work Directory = Other Directory and the directory does not exist on the computer where the script is run?
A. Work Directory shows the folder where additional resources files specified on the Resource View pane are unpacked. If Execution Type = Extract, the script is also unpacked to Work Directory. If Execution Type = Compile, the script is not unpacked, but the current folder is set as Work Directory. If Work Directory = Other Directory and the directory does not exist on the computer where the script is run, the folder where the exe file is located is used by default.
Q. Can I distribute exe files created with the licensed version of ExeScript?
A. Yes. It depends on the type of your license.
Q. What is your upgrade policy?
A. Within one year after the purchase, you get all upgrades to the product free of any charges. Simply download the setup file with the latest version, install it, enter your existing license key into it, and that's all. If your one year of free upgrades has already expired, you can purchase the updated version at a discount.
Of course, you don't have to upgrade if you don't want to: you may continue using the version that you have purchased for as long as you like, if it works for you well enough, without paying any additional fees.
