During Windows for Workgroups Setup, the two program information files (PIFs) _DEFAULT.PIF and DOSPRMPT.PIF are overwritten. Windows for Workgroups Setup overwrites these two files to ensure that they are in the proper format for a Windows 3.1 PIF. Windows 3.0 PIFs have slightly different formats.

To preserve any changes you might have made to these files, rename them before you run Setup.
