For the purpose of debugging why the first start of Windows 3.1 after the installation crashes DOSBox, I was looking for a way to automate the installation process.
Surprisingly, there is one, the
/H switch !
C:\SETUP>SETUP.EXE /? Sets up Windows 3.1 on your system. setup [/N] [/I] [/O:filespec] [/S:filepath] [/B] [/T] [/C] [/A] [/H:filespec] /N - Sets up a shared copy of Windows from a network server. /I - Ignores hardware detection. During Setup, user will need to check accuracy of settings on System Information screen, and possibly make corrections. /O:filespec - Specifies the SETUP.INF file. /S:filepath - Specifies a path to the setup disk(s). /B - Sets up Windows with monochrome display attributes. /T - Searches the drive for memory-resident (TSR) programs, and notifies you about certain programs. For information about using specific programs with Setup or Windows, see SETUP.TXT. /C - Turns off the search for memory-resident (TSR) programs. /A - Administrative setup -- places Windows on a network server. Setup expands and copies all files on every disk to a given directory, and marks them read-only. /H:filespec - Batch mode setup. Sets up Windows with little or no user interaction. "Filespec" is the name of the system settings file that contains user's configuration settings. If "filespec" is not in the directory from which Windows is being set up, the path must be included.
Unfortunately, I can't find any documentation about it on the web ...
Do you know where I can find more information on setting up the feature ?
