This article was previously published under Q250104


Automated (or batch) installations are not supported in Windows Millennium Edition (Me).

Using the tools designed for previous operating systems (for example, Microsoft Windows 95, Microsoft Windows 98, or Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition) for automated installation of Windows Me may result in problems or error messages during Setup.


Windows Me is an operating system developed for the home user, and as such does not have tools updated or made specifically for batch support or tools for the creation of custom .inf files.

The Windows 98 automated installation tools (listed below) may work in some scenarios, but have not been tested and are not supported by Microsoft Product Support Services with Windows Me:

Automated .inf Installer (Infinst.exe)
Microsoft Batch 98 Automated Setup Tool (Batch.exe)
Batch File Wait (Sleep.exe)
