What is BAT file?

The .BAT file extension is a batch file format. These files are mainly related to the Microsoft’s Batch Processing.

The batch file takes on the form of a text based file that comprises of a series of commands from the operating system. Such files have been named for the fact that they have a batch of commands in one file that would have been otherwise, it had to be represented to the operating system interactively from a keyboard one at a time. The AUTOEXEC.BAT file is one of the best known .BAT files, which initializes the DOS system when it is started.

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the BAT file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the BAT file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the BAT file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the BAT file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the BAT file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the BAT file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
