Running the software on Windows without batch files
I hope someone can help with my problem. We are trying to get the software running within our network environment; however the network policy states that batch files cannot be run by users. Is there an alternative way to get the tools to run without requiring a batch file? Executable JAR possibly or starting by windows shortcut?
Re: Running the software on Windows without batch files
The bat files just change the directory and run the appropriate class with the correct classpath. You can just copy the bat files to local dirs and edit them to change the directory to where nand2netris is unpacked.
Alternatively, you can just distribute the package, which contains the applications and the project directories, so the students would run the tools from their own machines.
I've put the tools in a project on github and added various improvements there. I tried to package the tools in executable jars, but there are still some resources, which they load directly from the disk. I'll try to fix that soon, but right now am a bit busy, so no promises...
