Is this an upgraded version of Win 95 or the full version?

Boot into Windows, put the CD ROM in the drive.  If it doesn't autorun, go to File/Run and browse to the CD ROM Drive.  Point it to the setup file, which may be in the Win95 directory if it doesn't find it on the root.

If you're CD-ROM drive is D:, goto the file menu of Program Manager and select run.  Then in the box that appears, type "d:\setup" without the quotes.  From program manager, goto the file menu and select exit.  when the c:\ prompt appears, type "d:\setup" Again, without the quotes.  One of these should work.

I don't think you will have "auto-run" in Win3.1.
Try double-clicking on the setup.exe file located on your Win95 CD or floppy when the disk is viewed in Program Manager.
