You can add a device entry to the 386Enh section of the System.ini file with the Add Device to System.ini script item. When you run a script on Windows 95 with the Add Device to System.ini command in it, you receive the following error message:

This program has performed and illegal operation and will be shutdown

The error details show SMSISTUB caused a general protection fault (GP fault) in module ~GLC0003.TMP at 0002:0000dd20.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Systems Management Server Installer 1.0. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
