I am using VMware on a XP Pro machine. I need to have a batch file OR some other way to expand the compressed files that I have copied to the dos directory in the DOS VM environment. The old setup discs I have will not do the expansion during the setup phase of DOS. I know I can do the compressed files one at a time but there has to be a better way.
If someone could come up with a way to do it with out typing each command for the 100+ files that would be great. I have tried to create a batch file to do that, however I don't have enough batch file experience to do it and maybe it can"t be done. I have no problem getting files into the dos directory in the VM environment. SO if I need to do the expansion in XP that would be ok to.
I am on a time table for this since it involves my job.
