I wonder if there is available a list that has all of the filenames that are contained in all of the Win95 Installation .CAB files?
Does anyone know? (I'm sure there is, Just havn't found it)

Accepted answer must include the location to download or find such files.

Thanks.

Or do it your self.
Copy everything between the lines and make a batch file.
In other words, Copy
===============================
@C:
@CD\
@MD \EXTRACT
@FOR %%x IN (E:\WIN95\*.CAB) DO EXTRACT /D %%x >> C:\EXTRACT\LISTCAB.TXT
@EDIT C:\EXTRACT\LISTCAB.TXT
===============================
Then paste it to notepad and Save As "Anyname.bat"

Go to a dos window and with your 95 CD in run the Anyname.bat.
It will make a diretory called C:\EXTRACT and in it will be
the Listcab.txt. All the files on you CD.
Copy the text file to where ever you want it and Delete the
C:\Extract directory.

The easist way of view the contents of a CAB file is to download and install Power Toys from Microsoft (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/download/powertoy.exe).  It is a shell extension for Win95 and adds a menu item to the right mouse button list.

All you need to install is CabView.

Hope this helps,

Stuart.

Thanks Dennis,
Smeebud, that's the type of answer I would have figured out, (not bad, that's just the type of solution I would have come up with if I were to have figured it out.)
Stuart, That's the easiest one yet.

I wish there were a way to award the points to more than one individual,  I appreciate your help!
