Automated Installation of MSIE4 for Windows 95 & 3.11
Posted on 1998-04-06
Hi Guys - I dodn't really know where to put this one - and as it's worth a fair few points I can't really spread it around.
I have to write 2 scripts 1)to be run in Windows 95 2) to be run in Windows 3.11 to automatically install MS Internet Explorer V4.01.
I've never really done this sort of thing before. I've written scripts in DOS (batch files etc) which will automate installation, but nothing more adventurous.
How easy/difficult is this to achieve? Or am I better issuing the MSIE executables as distributed by MS and supplying a written script?
The installation will be applied to a variety of machines and capabilities, range 486 25Mhz to Pentium II 233Mhz. Manufacturers include Fujitsu, Dell, Gateway, SNI etc
The final product will likely be cut onto a CD ROM (to be installed using either external or internal drive, depending on the machine)
