Win95 osr2 - lost file

I have Win95 osr2, that came with several new utilities, including a system tool called "Create System Disks" (mscsd.exe).  When I clicked on the menu item, "Create System Disks" utility off the System Tools menu (which is off the Accessories
menu)and got the following error message, "The initialization file needed for this program is missing.
The program will now end." (Real helpful!)  I have Win95 osr2, by the way.
I tracked down the .exe file in my C:\Windows\Options folder (mscsd.exe) and
the .inf file in the C:\Windows\Inf folder (mscsd.inf), so I assume I'm missing an .ini or
.dll file.  If you could tell me the name of the file and where it goes, I
can pull it off the Win95 CD-ROM.  I've tried to reinstall the system tools in
add/remove new programs (in Control Panel) to no avail, as well as scouring
my hard disk for associations.  If you can solve this one, I'll tell all my friends
about your site!

Try the following:
Download "Win-eXpose-I/O", a shareware program you'll find
at www.shetef.com.
It'll track for you all file - I/O, even the attempts.
You'll trace your program while the error occurs, and
you'll find a "failed attempt to access file xxx.xxx".

I guess thats what you need.
