When you use the Microsoft Batch Installation Utility (Batch.exe) includedwith Microsoft Windows 95 Service Pack 1 to create a custom Msbatch.inffile that contains an [InstallLocationsMRU] section, the section issuccessfully added to the file. However, after you install Windows 95using the custom Msbatch.inf file, the [InstallLocationsMRU] section maynot be implemented as you intended it to be.
When you use the Batch.exe tool to create an Msbatch.inf file thatcontains an [InstallLocationsMRU] section, the section is added to thefile and entries for each path that you specify are added to the section.However, the entries are created using an incorrect syntax.
To work around this problem, manually edit the Msbatch.inf file so thateach entry in the [InstallLocationsMRU] section uses the following syntax
where <source> is the path that you want to appear in the list of foldersfrom which you can choose when you are prompted for the location of theWindows 95 Setup files and <n> is a sequential number associated with eachentry.

For example, the [InstallLocationsMRU] section could appear similar to thefollowing example:
   [InstallLocationsMRU]   \\server\share\folder=mru1   c:\win95=mru2   \\winserver\source=mru3				
Microsoft is researching this problem and will post new information herein the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
