What is an EBACMD file?
An EBACMD file is a command or other data file used by EBA Command Center, a Windows shortcut application. It contains XML-formatted plain text. EBACMD files are used by EBA Command Center 5 and later versions.
EBA Command Center is a Windows application that allows users to create command-based shortcuts to files and websites, as well as execute simple system commands. After installing the program, which is contained in a .VBS script, users can create commands by entering config → cmd → new in EBA Command Center's text box.
An EBA command contains:
- The command's name
- The command's type (typically url for shortcuts and cmd for system commands)
- The command's target (the file or website to be opened or the system command to be performed)
- A check for whether a user must be logged in to EBA Command Center to execute the command
Commands are saved as EBACMD files. To execute a command, users enter the command's name (as listed in the EBACMD file) in EBA Command Center's text box.
While most EBACMD files are EBA Command Center commands, they can store other data the program uses. For example, the file isLoggedIn.ebacmd stores information about the user that is logged in to EBA Command Center.
NOTE: Prior to EBA Command Center 9.1, EBACMD files were simple plain text files that were not formatted using XML.
How to open an EBACMD file
Most EBACMD files are meant to be used as EBA Command Center commands. To use an EBACMD file as an EBA Command Center command, you must install and set up the program, and then enter the command's name in EBA Command Center's text box. If you want to open and examine an EBACMD file before using it with EBA Command Center (for example, to verify what type of command it contains), you can do so using any text editor.
