This build features a more refined Start Menu, and on the desktop you can find only My Computer when first booting.
After setup at the first login you are presented with a question to re-run hardware detection, but you can skip it or do it, but every time you boot it aks the same question.

This build CAB32.EXE (Explorer) can also crash you into the Command Line, just type WIN to start it again.

We recommend doing this on Microsoft Virtual PC 2004 with an older PC.
Install MS-DOS 5, then change DOS=HIGH to DOS=LOW in CONFIG.SYS.
Copy the installation files to a folder on the HDD including the subfolders(we use \WIN95) and then run SETUP from that folder.

Installation on newer PCs
Download the file:
Start the installation as usual, after the File Copy but before the first boot, copy the 3 files to %windir%\system and %windir%\system\iosubsys and add WIN /D:X to AUTOEXEC.BAT.
Then follow the installation as normal.
