How to make an .EXE app?

An EXE is the file extension in Windows operating systems, which donates that that file is executable and can be installed. For a programmer creating an executable file is not a big thing, but forย  non- techies it is a great thing. Today here in this post at Chaaps I am going to show you a tutorial how can you create a simple executable file without any programming knowledge.

Steps

  • Download a small application of 422Kb called Bat to EXE converter from here. Using this app you can easily convert any batch coded file to EXE.
  • Second step is to create a batch application. Those who don’t how what is a batch application? Let me explain you first. It is a notepad file coded with CMD command and saved with .BAT extension, here in this tutorial I am going to show an example with a simple batch code to cancel any printing job.
  • Copy paste this code in a notepad file with . bat extention.

@echo off
echo Stopping print spooler.
echo.
net stop spooler
echo deleting stuff... where? I'm not sure. Just deleting stuff.
echo.
FOR %%A IN (%systemroot%system32spoolprinters*.*) DO DEL %%A
echo Starting print spooler.
echo.
net start spooler

  • After copying the code start the Bat to EXE converter application.
  • Browse the batch app and set the directory where you want it to be converted and get saved.
  • You can easily encrypt, password protect it or add Windows Vista admin manifest.
  • To add encryption click on the “Encrypt” and enter the password.
  • To add Windows Vista admin manifest click on the “Add Vista Adminstrator mainfest” below the Misc section.
