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.
