The Internet Client SDK contains a debug version of Wininet.dll that is described in Inetdbg.txt. Inetdbg.txt lists steps necessary to replace the release version of the Wininet.dll with the debug version. These steps may not work correctly when applied to Windows 95.


Use these steps to replace the DLL on Windows 95:

  1. Restart Windows 95 in MS-DOS mode (click Start, and select Shut Down and Restart to MS-DOS, then click OK).
  2. Replace the DLL from the command prompt. Assume that C:\Win95\System is a system directory. Rename release version of the DLL with this command:

    move  c:\win95\system\wininet.dll  c:\win95\system\

    Copy debug version of the DLL from SDK to the system directory:

    copy c:\inetsdk\lib\debug\wininet.dll c:\win95\system
  3. Restart Windows by typing "exit" at the DOS prompt.

When finished with debugging, follow similar steps to restore original DLL.
