After installing Windows 95 on a computer running Btrieve, DaVinci Mail,or Microcom Carbon Copy, several terminate-and-stay-resident programs(TSRs) no longer appear in the Autoexec.bat file.

Your programs still function properly and the TSRs load into memory.
Windows 95 removes the TSRs for these programs from the Autoexec.bat fileand places them in the Winstart.bat file.
This behavior is by design.
More information
Windows 95 moves the following TSRs to the Winstart.bat file:

DaVinci Mail:
   Mhsblink   Mhsalarm.exe   Wks_nb.exe				
Microcom Carbon Copy:
   Doshost.exe   Dosker				
The Winstart.bat file is used to load TSRs that are required for Windows-based programs and are not needed in MS-DOS sessions. You should not usethe Winstart.bat file for setting environment variables.
