    Win 9x install log files – need to know - Very A+

    • SETUPLOG.TXT - Used to log installation of Windows. Contains a list of user components chosen during installation. The [Detection] section is built following the hardware detection portion of setup. It indicates whether the detection phase of setup completed successfully or not. Windows uses this file when it is recovering from a crash to determine how far it got in the installation.

    • DETCRASH.LOG - Used to log hardware detection during setup. Readable only by setup process to determine which module was running when the system halted.

    • DETLOG.TXT - Equivalent of DETCRASH.LOG written in a readable format. Keeps a record of hardware detected.

    If Setup suspects that a network card is present, because it sees a network driver installed in Config.sys, it records in Setuplog.txt and Detlog.txt that it is about to look for the card. If it finds the card, it records the success in Detlog.txt. However, if an error occurs while Setup searches for the card, an entry is made in the Detcrash.log file. When Setup restarted, it looks at Detcrash.log and Setuplog.txt to determine what it was trying to do at the time of the crash.



    • NETLOG.TXT - Logs detected network component information.

    • BOOTLOG.TXT– Logs loaded drivers and services.

    Exploring the directory

    Each file gets its own entry in the DIRECTORY (32 bytes)

    • File Name

      • DOS 8.3 (8 character file name with optional 3 character extension)

      • File names should not use the following characters:

        • | < > \ ^ + = ? [ ] " ; : , * Very A+

      • Extension - dot not saved

      • VFAT, now we have FAT32, allows up to 255 characters

    Note that there is a 260 character limit for pathname plus filename - Very A+



    1. Create a file1, 2 and the file FILE3. The directory now looks like the following:

    2. .

    3. ..

    4. FILE1

    5. FILE2

    6. FILE3

    7. Delete File2 and file3. The directory now looks like the following:

    8. .

    9. ..

    10. FILE1

    11. E5H

    12. E5H

    CONFIG.SYS

    Real mode. A text file used by DOS and supported by Windows 9x that lists device drivers (16-bit) drivers to be loaded at startup.

    AUTOEXEC.BAT

    A startup text file once used by DOS and used by Windows to provide backward compatibility. It executes commands automatically during the boot process.



    WIN.INI - Windows version of AUTOEXEC.BAT. For backwards compatibility. Its functions were replaced by the registry beginning with Windows 9x.

    SYSTEM.INI - Windows version of CONFIG.SYS. For backwards compatibility
    Use SYSEDIT to view and edit these files Very A+
