I know that this is possible, I just don't remember WHAT I did.
I have an upgrade CD for Windows 95. Supposedly it requires that you have Windows 3.x on your system before it will work properly, but I know that the COMPLETE Windows 3.x does NOT have to be installed for the Windows 95 upgrade to work.
There are like only 3 or 4 files that the Windows 95 upgrade looks for when it runs. If those files are not present it will not install.
I need to know what these files are. I think one of them was GDI.EXE.
