Sysmon.exe & Cdplayer.exe

I recently overhauled my hard-drive, putting the new Windows 95 Service Release 2 on.  But I found to my dismay that Sysmon.exe and Cdplayer.exe, the 2 accesories which I found the most useful were nowhere to be found.  What's up?  and where can I get them?

salamander,
 this was my first solution. We all have our bad days,
good luck

You can use the Extract tool to determine which cabinet file contains a particular
Windows 95 file. When you use this syntax, the Extract tool searches the cabinet
files but does not extract the file once it is found:
EXTRACT /A /D <cabinet> <filename>
For example, to find the UNIDRV.DLL file, starting with the
WIN95_02.CAB file, using CD in the E drive, use the following
command:
EXTRACT /A /D E:\WIN95_02.CAB UNIDRV.DLL
--------------------------------------------
To extract from CD, 1st CD to the E:\win95> prompt then type the following:

EXTRACT /A /L C:\PATH WIN95_02.CAB FILENAME
OR
EXTRACT /A /L C:\TEMP WIN95_02.CAB UNIDRV.DLL
--------------------------------------------
BAT FILE TO EXTRACT TO TEXT ALL THE FILES IN .CAB's

@C:
@CD\
@MD \EXTRACT
@FOR %%x IN (E:\WIN95\*.CAB) DO EXTRACT /D %%x >>
C:\EXTRACT\LISTCAB.TXT
@EDIT C:\EXTRACT\LISTCAB.TXT

You will find sysmon.exe in: Win95_17.cab File
you will find cdplayer.exe in: Win95_13.cab File
Extract them from you CD and you're back in business

I followed your advice for the batch file.  Sure enough, it worked - but those 2 files aren't listed in the .TXT file I created.

You are running OSR2, is that correct?

When Win95 installs, it does not by default install all of the components.Both of the items you require are available from OSR2 through control panel/add remove programmes/windows setupHighlight Accessories, click the details button and check mark Sysmon.Highlight Multimedia, click details button and check mark Cd Player.

Obviously I would have tried this.  These 2 accesories were not listed in the setup.

Sorry but it wasn't obvious to me, you did not say what your knowledge level was or what you had already tried.You have not answered Smeebud's question. Are you sure you have an OSR2 CD?. I have checked the CAB locations on 2 OSR2 disks as indicated by Smeebud and they are correct.

salamander,
You said, "Obviously I would have tried this", to do. Nothing is obvious until you tell us.
Have you tried extracting the files from your CD?

Firstly, I apologize for my comments.  Being at a loss for answers has a tendency to make me edgy.  Secondly, thanks for attempting to help.  I found the answer I was looking for.  I installed Win95 off the latest MSDN cd I received... it had the OSR2 label on it.  Great, I thought, so I installed it - but not out of the OSR2 directory.  I'm not sure why I didn't see this, but thank you and I'm sorry.  No one currently has a question so I can't give the points.. Please submit your next comment as an answer and I'll give you the points.
