I am trying to slipstream the drivers for my computer into the Win95 setup. Thanks to many posts here I have a semi working msbatch.inf. I have a couple of little hiccups, even though I have set my briefcase to 0 it is still installed. Second problem has to do with the inf's for the hardware.

During the DOS based installer it asks where the inf's are even though they are in the /win95 directory once I select one it doesn't prompt for the rest. During the Windows phase of the install the installer asks for every one of the files for my soundcard. I modified the inf for it for example cwcshfo.osp=1,drivers\audio where drivers is a subdir in the win95 source. My other drivers are modded similarly and windows doesn't prompt for files.

Below is my msbatch.inf perhaps someone might point me to get windows to find the added inf's without prompting.

Well... :crazy:

Could you rename a "copy* of it as "msbatch.txt" (so it'll upload) and attach it? Or else edit your post and use a CodeBox instead as it's one...long...string right now. Just copy/past contents into the following:

(open-bracket)code(close-bracket)Code Text(open-bracket)/code(close-bracket)
Nobody will really want to fix what you have to make it readable. Sorry. :(

Someday the tyrants will be unthroned... Jason "Jay" Chasteen; RIP, bro!
