The only exception is the "-gxx" flag which is used to specify a language. In the case, the xx stand for a 2-character code which represents a supported language. This flag is not passed on to sbsetup, but instead tells setup which language to install. ** NOTE: Although setup expects flags in the form "-x", sbsetup expects flags in the form "x" without the dash. Command Line Errors: 1) Flags are NOT case sensative. 2) Flags can be entered in any order. 3) Flags not of the form "-x" will cause setup to fail. Each unique flag must be preceded by a dash. Whitespace is ignored (although windows requires a space after the executable string and arguments). 4) "-gxx" flags specifying an unsupported language will cause setup to fail. 5) Running Setup without sbsetup in the correct default path will cause failure. 6) Any command line error will cause setup to fail without ever even attempting to execute sbsetup. Return Codes: Setup has 3 returnable exit codes unique from sbsetup. - 510 EXIT_CMDLINE_ERROR (reason #3 above) - 511 EXIT_UNSUPPORTED_LANGUAGE (reason #4 above) - 512 EXIT_SBSETUP_NOT_FOUND (reason #5 above) - SBSetup error codes are returned through Setup if none of the above are caused. ****** Release s5.18 ******** SBPCI.VXD ver 4.06.1154 rev 1709 SBPCI9X.DRV ver 4.06.1154 rev 617 * APINIT.COM ver 5.12 * SBPCINT4.DLL ver 4.10.27 rev 989 SBPCINT4.SYS ver 4.10.27 rev 1362 SBSETUP - new parameter " i" added for Install Shield Floppy Installs Same as silent install " s", but the Add/Remove Programs entry IS added WIN9X Driver DRV rev 617 - Starter added again - Synth Spatial = ON SBINIT 5.12 5.10->5.12 Made the SetDACVolume command apply the new volume value to the SB16 internal Mixer so that SBMixer.exe and DOS SB16 apps agree on the DAC volume value.
