auto setup stops at license agreement & start disk

When using the batch/inf file to set up win 95 unattended, It always stops at the license agreement screen, the oem # screen and the create boot up disk screens.  I've tried the NT unattended setup parameter to skip the license screen to no avail, there must be diff one for 95.  I've tried to put the OEM # in setup with "oem" and dashes and without, it keeps stalling there.  I've also put 0 in the create startup disk part of the file (created with MS utility), but setup always stops at these 3 places.  The rest of setup works flawless, but these 3 hang til answered for some strange reason.  Any help appreciated.

In the MSBATCH.INF file, add these lines under [Setup]

Express=1    ;uses MSBATCH.INF & defaults only
EBD=0        ;don't create an emergency boot disk


I can't remember if Express requires the Product number or not.  If it stops and asks, add the line

ProductID=xxx-xxxxxxx   (the actual product id)


That should clear up the stops.  If one is left, let me know and we can clear that up too!

Thanks for the comment,

I'd like to respond to sundancer, but need an e-mail.  I do have the express setup to 1 and EBD to 0 with no success.  I also have to stop at the license agreement first regardless.  I've tried putting in the product id # but only have the -oem- form, not the  10 digit form.  If i put the oem # in, it shows that I've entered nothing.  I plan to try this all on a non-OSR 2 ver of win95 tommorow, thanks for trying though....

Hmm..  then let me backup a little!

Although SETUP is supposed to use MSBATCH.INF if it finds it, sometimes it doesn't.  Use a fully qualified path; ie:

SETUP W:\WIN95\MSBATCH.INF

Also, WHERE the entries are in the MSBATCH.INF file are crucial.
All the above must be under [SETUP]

There are also some parameters I'd rather not post publically that will definitely bypass everything.
