Command Line - Invalid Reference = T:/C:\wininsto.400/scrdir= etc.

Registry First Aid reports the following:
HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Current Version\Setup

Value "Command Line" has invalid file reference:
"T:/C:\WININSTO.400/ScrDir=C:\Windows\Options\Cabs /IS /IW /IQ /ID /IV /IZ /II /NR /II /C /U:xxxxxxxx..."

The segment of that value string; "C:\WININSTO.400", is "hi-lited" in a different color.

A File/Folder search finds no entries for WININSTO.

Googling about for Wininsto has been of no help.

In Re; the "O" in Wininsto.400: both Regedit and Registry First Aid show it as being numeric, whereas all of the Google results, including "support.microsoft.com", show it as being alpha. I have done File/Folder searches in both configurations.

The "T:/" prefix on the string is a mystery to me, I've never seen it anywhere before.

Is there a "fix for this situation? Should I just delete or modify all or some part(s) of that registry entry?

My greetings to BillDL, blue zee, Lee Tutor, and others that I can't recall at the moment. And to the rest of the folks at EE, Thank you all for being there and doing the fine work that you as a group do.

Sincerely, Larry Harsha

That should be system info data and it seems there is some error there.

See a few examples:

Maybe you could double check?

Wininst0 (it is a zero)

Clean install using Full CD /T:C:\WININST0.400 /SrcDir=E:\WIN98 ...etc

Check the /T:C:...
