Error IDSE0500 occurs whilst generating batch file in Index.dat Suite
After generating the batch file, Index.dat Suite checks the file for potentially dangerous commands, such as deltree /y *.*, or any command that is less than 14 characters (the smallest possible length of a valid command). This feature was added in an effort to prevent running a potentially dangerous batch file (especially when viewing the file after generation has been disabled).
To correct this problem, open up the batch file in a plain text editor (e.g. Notepad, ACF Notes) and check the paths and commands that have been added. A typical (valid) path will look something along the lines of;
del c:\documents and settings\<username>\cookies\index.dat
deltree /y c:\windows\cookies\index.dat
Alternatively, those using v2.7.5 or above, can now disable this feature via the Index.dat Suite settings;
1. Select Tools > Settings, and click the "Batch File"* tab
2. Place a tick next to "Always verify batch file contents after file generation"
3. Click Save to close the settings dialog
If the paths are valid and the problem persists, please contact us.
* This setting was previously located on the General tab.
