You could always compile the .BAT file into a .COM file then convert the
.COM to an .EXE. I just converted a batch file using a PC Mag app written
in 1990 and it worked fine. It's a couple of extra steps and I don't know
how well it would work with sophisticated batch files but it may be an
option for you.
