Installing .INF files
Posted on 1997-05-21
I ma reposting a Re-Edited version of this question in a new thread as somehow it got marked as answered (but not to my satisfaction). I have deleted the bits that have been covered.
Can anyone please tell me if it is possible to install .INF files for Windows 95 using a .BATch file.
I have written a .BATch file which uses the capabilities of BATCH20 (Batch Setup) but in my experience it is not a "complete" answer to the problem of reinstalling Windows 95. For one it does not accurately diagnose what "Bits" of Windows 95 is or is not installed. Also Re-Installation looses settings and configuration for programs already installed like Norton Navigator or of Access in Office Professional. I don't necessarily want to have to install those again as well.
Someone must know what the MERGE command that is shown for .INF files in Windows Explorer really does and how to do it on the command line.
