Win95 startup produces nuisance write to autoexec.bat
Posted on 1997-07-31
When my win95 starts the logo appears and then a dos screen (non windowed) appears and the autoexec.bat file has a line created in it if it doesnt already exist.
That line is always:
SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D1 H5 P330 T6
If i delete the line, restarting win95 will recreate it.
My autoexec and config.sys are basically empty, i want win95 to take control of all all devices, not dos.
After all the Win95 Device Manager is fully configured to handle the Sound Card.
Also as a possible side effect, i have 32mb of memory and System Monitor shows at least 16MB this is locked when win95 starts. All settings for virtual memory, disk cache etc is set for a normal setup of win95.
Im looking for someone who has experienced with the above autoexec or memory problem and solved it.
