I want to install the upgrade version of Windows 95 without installing Windows3.1. I saw a solution to this problem on this site but can't seem to find it now. Something about a batch file which tricks win95 into thinking Win3.1 is installed. More detailed information on the contents of this file would be appreciated.

Yeah maybe, but what if you haven't got the Windows 3.1 disks. I just wanted to try and get a good clean install. I know that if you copy the Win95 directory off the CD-rom on to the hard drive that this will trick it into a clean install. I just wanted to find out how to write the batch file because I do a lot of installs for people and mucking around copying and deleting is a waste of time. Can anybody help me..............?????

If you cant come up with the requirements to install teh upgrade, you should prolly not try to install the upgrade.
