WinExec failed Return=2

Netscape 4.0 beta and some other sw-packages cannot install
on certain win95 computers. The Installshield unpack process
stops at 99% displaying the message WinExec failed Return=2.
This should mean, that some files are missing somewhere.
Netscape 3.01 installs without problems.
I noticed, that the header info in the NS 4.0 and 3.01 exe-files are different.
Reinstalling win95 does not solve the problem.

Which files are missing?

Best way to solve this requires installing the debug version of Windows 95 (available with the SDK.)  It will tell you the specific cause of load failures.  Other than that, I would suspect that the problem is a failure to install an EXE.
