Take the original .TXT file and open it in notepad.
Go to File>Save as.
In the file type drop down menu at the bottom select all files.
Enter a name for your file followed by .BAT.

Hope this helps.

Hi monkeyshyte101, just wanted to explain to you how to mark threads as solved and the uses of other buttons.

To the top right of this post you will see 3 icons. An orange (+), a set of scales and a red and white warning triangle.

The orange (+) or blue (-) denotes whether a user is on or offline (orange = on, blue = off)

The scales are used to give rep points; click this button if someone has helped you significantly or solved your queries (only give this to posts you think really deserve it).

The red and white warning triangle are used to denote either an abusive post OR to mark a thread ad solved (just put solved in the box that comes up and the admins or moderators will mark it solved).

I'll mark it solved for you this time.

Alternatively you could save the file with quotation marks eg. "file.bat"
