********************************* ** Batch Setup Release Notes ** ** Version 1.0 04/26/95 ** ********************************* ============ INTRODUCTION ============ By running this program and answering as many or as few questions as desired, a user will help automate his or her setup. Please see the online help for instructions on running Windows 95 Setup in Batch Mode. After running this program, the .INF file created (BSETUP.INF) will be used by Windows 95 Setup and later copied to the name MSBATCH.INF. The INF file created complies with the Windows 95 Resource Kit, Appendix D. This program does not actually run Windows 95 Setup, it merely prepares the INF file for use with it. Batch Setup works for both GUI and DOS-mode upgrades. The following set of instructions indicate the suggested method for executing Batch Setup. =*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*= 1) Run the supplied program and answer all questions to create your customized Information file. 2) Run Windows 95 Setup and include the name (and fully qualified path) of the INF file as an argument. For example : D:\WIN95\SETUP C:\BSETUP.INF If your network supports UNC's, those can be used as well. Example : \\SERVER1\WIN95\SETUP \\SERVER2\USERS\JOEUSER\BSETUP.INF This program is not required to run Windows 95 setup in batch-mode, only the INF file that it creates. 3) Windows 95 Setup will then run in batch mode. If you answered all the questions on the opening screen, you will probably not have to touch your computer again until it reboots after Setup... just type 'WIN' to enter Windows 95! =*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*= There are a few setup messages that batch setup cannot automate. These are fully outlined in the Resource Kit, Appendix D and Chapter 5. Please see the online help and Chapters 5 and Appendix D of the Windows 95 Resource Kit for an explanation of all available settings. ================================= NEW FEATURES ADDED TO BATCH SETUP ================================= The following features were added to batch-mode setup for Windows 95 but were not included in batch.exe. Please read Appendix D and Chapter 5 of the Windows 95 Resource Kit for a full explanation of all options. UNINSTALL : Windows 95 supports batch-mode settings for the Un-installation of Windows 95. This parameter is used to specify whether Setup should create a compressed backup version of the existing Windows and MS-DOS directories to be used for automatically uninstalling Windows 95. If you specify Uninstall=5, you also must add a value for BackupDir=path that specifies the directory where Setup should place the compressed backup files. Parameter Uninstall Values 0 = Do not allow user to specify Uninstall options, and do not create backup files for uninstalling Windows 95 1 = Show Uninstall options for user to choose 5 = Do not show Uninstall options, but automatically create backup files for uninstalling Windows 95 Default 1 Add this parameter to the [Setup] section of the BSETUP.INF file (for instance, 'Uninstall=5') using a standard text editor (EDIT). DEFAULT REDIRECTOR : Windows 95 allows you to specify which client you want to be your default client (for instance, the client for Microsoft networks or the client for NetWare networks). Batch.exe does not support an automatic way to set which client is the default (the client for Microsoft networks, if present will be the default). If you wish the client for NetWare networks to be the default over the client for Microsoft networks, open the BSETUP.INF file with a plain text editor. Locate the line 'CLIENTS=' in the '[Network]' section of the file. The first client listed will be the default. So, to make the client for NetWare networks default, move the keyword 'NWREDIR' in front of the keyword 'VREDIR.' Please note that you can also reset the default from within the network control panel once Windows 95 has set up. There are additional settings which are available to batch setup that are not listed here. Please read the Windows 95 resource kit for a full explanation and list of all possible settings.Download Driver Pack
