Hello,

I have tried to determine what is the meaning of ProductType for 9x OSes. Here is the result:

This information is always stored in HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion, ProductType.
The following texts are taken form Microsoft MSInfo32 utility:Windows 98
100 - Clean install using Microsoft Internal
101 - Clean install using Full CD
102 - Clean install using CD
103 - Clean install using Full Floppy
104 - Clean install using Floppy
105 - Clean install using Web
110 - Clean install using Select CD
111 - Clean install using MSDN CD
112 - Clean install using WIN98 Upgrade (Windows 98 SE only)
115 - Clean install using Full OEM CD
116 - Clean install using OEM CD
120 - Clean install using OEM Preinstall Kit
On the distribution media, the information is stored in setupx.dll (stored in precopy2.cab), string resource 96, string 1526.

Windows Me
100 - Microsoft Windows ME 4.90.3000  Microsoft Internal
101 - Microsoft Windows ME 4.90.3000  Retail CD Full
102 - Microsoft Windows ME 4.90.3000  Retail CD Upgrade
103 - Microsoft Windows ME 4.90.3000  Retail Floppy Full
104 - Microsoft Windows ME 4.90.3000  Retail Floppy Upgrade
105 - Microsoft Windows ME 4.90.3000  Retail Electronic Upgrade
110 - Microsoft Windows ME 4.90.3000  Select CD Full
111 - Microsoft Windows ME 4.90.3000  MSDN
112 - Microsoft Windows ME 4.90.3000  WIN98 Upgrade
115 - Microsoft Windows ME 4.90.3000  OEM CD Full
116 - Microsoft Windows ME 4.90.3000  OEM CD Upgrade
120 - Microsoft Windows ME 4.90.3000  OEM OPK Full
121 - Microsoft Windows ME 4.90.3000 ???
On the distribution media, the information is stored in setupx.dll (stored in precopy2.cab), string resource 96, string 1526 and in W9xsetup.bin, string resource 10, string 144.
For Windows 95 the information is taken from the web and from my experience:
1
2 - Retail CD Upgrade (full too?)
3 - Floppy Upgrade
4 -
5 -
6 -
7 - Floppy
8 - Floppy
9 - OEM CD Full
This information is stored in SETUPPP.INF (in PRECOPY.CAB) in [data] section, as [ProductType]. The information if it is upgrade or not is stored in SETUPC.INF, [data] section, CCP=0 means no upgrade, CCP=1 means Compliance Checking Program.

If you have CD-ROM Windows 95 full, no upgrade, no OEM, and any floppy disk installs of Windows 95, please let me now the ProductType value so I could improve the table.

Don't trust what is written in the registry if you've been around the net with IE or have installed a bit of software.

I found out several times that entries under the HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion got changed by f*** knows what.

Product Type (XP instead of ME), username, etc...

FYI using the OEM restoration CD to restore Windows 98 SE to this IBM Aptiva 2170 yielded a *blank* product type, empty string.

I can add that for Windows Me this info is also stored in suwin.exe (stored in PRECOPY1.CAB), string resource 96, string 1526 otherwise you will get setupx.dll mismatch error
