Excellent work. Keep it up.
Most important ["interesting"] SYSTEM.INI settings with explanations:
That's where lines above were [probably] taken from anyway.
Text=xxx does not exist, [probably] copied + pasted from a misspelled web page/text file.
VGAMonoText=OFF / ON proper spelling is without any spaces.
MSBATCH.INF, HHW SDK, IE6 SP1 IEAK, IDK, OPK + related tools + help files links [including Soporific's thread]:
Some VB scripts [*.VBS files or VBScript scripts imbedded into HTML files] can be run from a DOS box by using CSCRIPT.EXE [therefore before loading entire GUI, but after loading minimal Win32 APIs; in some cases VBS can be run from native MS-DOS mode (outside Windows) if loading DOSLFN ( http://www.geocities.../jadoxa/doslfn/ ) as a TSR (eventually from autoexec.bat or config.sys) before running such scripts], the DOS console counterpart of Windows based WSCRIPT.EXE. WMI is not necessarily needed for some VBS scripts, especially the ones that can be run by CSCRIPT.EXE.
CSCRIPT.EXE is installed by default into %windir%\COMMAND [please note that certain 98lite options delete completely %windir%\COMMAND + all files in it].
Newest version of MS Scripting APIs:
To learn about VBScript, best place to start is MSDN:
Best tool that uses VBS for its plugins [XPL (plain text) files can be opened in Notepad for viewing] is X-Setup Pro [7.1 is shareware but older 6.6 is freeware]:
Some of these DOS based memory tools may be used in batch files to tell installed memory amount [all free(ware)], without using VBS:
Alternatives to HexWorkShop [mostly free(ware)]:
Try not to use c:\windows as hard-coded string in your batch/inf/etc files, because may not work on computers where user has installed it in a different folder, or even different drive/partition.
Best to use %winbootdir% variable instead, which works in both Windows GUI + native MS-DOS 7/8 [a.k.a. Win95/98/ME OS] mode.
If u like, I can host your files at my site, please let me know if u are interested.
Hope this helps.
