Now does this just include system files (related to Windows)? Or other 3rd party files?

Hello all:

I was looking for info on a file found ( SUWARN.BAT ) in the "autoexec.bat" file of a Windows 98 computer that I'm looking over for a friend.

I do not see it in your database and thought you would like to add it to your list.

Here is a short description found on the internet:

"During Phase 1 of the Windows 98 upgrade, the system checks for the presence of antivirus software in the system. The Setup routine may fail if CMOS Antivirus is enabled. If this occurs, check the SETUPLOG.TXT file for information about the antivirus test. In some cases, the Setup program may ask that the antivirus software be disabled so that it can have access to the Master Boot Record. Setup also modifies the AUTOEXEC.BAT file, causing it to run a file called SUWARN.BAT. This file reboots the system in case of a failure, and presents an explanation of why the setup failed."

And a few words from Microsoft:

1) "If for any reason Setup does not finish and the computer needs to be restarted, two lines in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file prompt you to run Setup again and choose the Smart Recovery option:

@if exist c:\wininst0.400\suwarn.bat call c:\wininst0.400\suwarn.bat

@if exist c:\wininst0.400\suwarn.bat del c:\wininst0.400\suwarn.bat"

2) "Setup modifies the Autoexec.bat file to call Suwarn.bat. If Setup fails or stops, Suwarn.bat runs at next reboot and displays a message explaining why Setup failed".

Regards
