SourcePathType for setup dir.

I have copied the setup dir. from the Win95 CD-ROM to c:\windows\setup\ what should I set SourcePathType to in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENT VERSIOn\SETUP.
Does it matter?

It doesn't matter. Just when Win95 will ask about insert CD, you
click Browse and locate you \Windows\Setup folder. To be sure
there is great tweaking program called WinHacker. It can change
default setup source path to whatever you want.

I have already change the source path in the registry. I want to know if I change SourcePathType will it say something other than "scanning win95 CD" or whatever it says.

I'm puzzled a little with your last comment. This string needed when you make some
installs/reinstalls/whatever that requires Win95 ó÷ it'll not ask for CD, but will do this
automatically. Is it what you asked for ?

It's a bit trivial. It's just that when it searches for a file (e.g. when ading windows components from add/remove programs) it displays a dialogue box saying what files are being copied and also where from. It was the message that says where the files are from that I wanted to change if possible. If it isn't then I'll just give you the points anyway.

Yeah, popular TweakUI from PowerToys can't do that. Just checked.
