This article describes how to install Internet Explorer 3.02 to a shared network copy, or server-based Setup (SBS) of Windows 95.
NOTE: This should be attempted only by experienced network administrators. You must already have a SBS of Windows 95.
WARNING: Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall Windows 95. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the incorrect use of Registry Editor can be solved. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.
NOTE: For information about how to edit the registry, view the Changing Keys And Values online Help topic in Registry Editor (Regedit.exe). Note that you should make a backup copy of the registry files (System.dat and User.dat) before you edit the registry.

NOTE: Before you install Internet Explorer 3.02 in a SBS of Windows 95, verify that all clients are disconnected from the server. Do not permit clients to connect to the server while you install Internet Explorer 3.02. Follow these steps from a client connected to the server containing the SBS of Windows 95.

For example, if the current value is "2c 00 00 00", change the value to "2c 01 00 00."
NOTE: If you do not set the value to "01," you cannot copy the Internet Explorer Setup files from the client to the server.
