Win32: the package contains an inf file, advpack.dll and dcomcnfg.exe showed a tabbed gui. Was able to apply the LAA flag to the zipped executable and dcomcnfg.exe with PrgLnch!

95 was a major release. Goodbye to 16 bit forever. DOS was on the way out- you still had win.ini and system.ini and autoexec.bat in Win9.x but not for long!

DOS wasn't killed until XP! I remember having to use the DOS mode on 95 for some recovery operations. My install had a tendency to break periodically. :P

I really liked Windows 95, though. It was, overall, a good version of Windows.

DOS is still thriving!

FreeDOS is still common in embedded systems. :)
