how to automate display settings in MSBATCH

I've fully automated Windows 95 Installation but i now have problems installing additional drivers. The detected drivers are Chips & Technologies, I have a new version but cant install it. I have to manually change display settings. Does anyone know how to automate this in setup ?

How different are the versions of the video driver? Can you copy the new driver files into the install directory?

Completely new drivers. Windows will only install a compatible one.

If your new screen drivers support a quiet/unattended install with their setup program, try the following in your MSBATCH.INF

[Install]
Addreg=system.config

[system.config]
HKLM,SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce,"Program   To Run Once",,"Your Program"

You can have multiples of these so you can automatically install other software at then end of your Windows95 installation.
Occassionaly with many Run Once commands, some can be executing at the same time.
To get around this problem, have the Run Once point to a batch file. This batch file can have all the applications you want to install but run with a start command. The syntax would be something like:
  start /w program1.exe
  start /w program2.exe
  ....

The /w causes the programs to wait before the next one is started. Also, keep the ones that need a reboot towards the end.

In the Msbatch.inf file, add the following section (if it isn't already there):
 
   [System]
 
Add only one of the following lines to the [System] section:
