In Windows 95 and 98, what list or "file" tells Windows what to copy during setup? Say for instance, in one of the Memphis Builds (Build 1511 to be precise), both of the aol3.0 files are missing. Not that I mind this, but I'll like to be able to make Windows bypass that and not even look for those particular files and move on to the next ones. Is there anyway to do this or how does it work? Thanks!

Try extracting layout.inf from precopy2.cab and finding the filenames in the file and take them out. With the 98/95/ME setup you won't have to repack the cabs if you've modified a file just put the file in the setup folder e.g. X:\WIN98

That's the answer I was looking for. I think I'll give that a shot when i get home.

So is the msbatch.ini file equivalent to an answer file in Windows NT versions of setup?

I think MSBATCH.INF will make it an automated setup and therefore skip all errors in the setup.

Yes, you could say so.
