Re: Win95 autorun

First of all I made a mistake!  you need to replace the ; with the word rem
Ex: rem Restart.  I forgot what language I was using.

The files are not created, I found them but I have not been able to get them
to write.  You don't need them anyway with the errorlevels.

Yes 1 is not the crash errorlevel.  I used errorlevel 1 for crash because I
have not found the crash exit yet, I'm still working on it. (As I type)

To get the pause write a small program that does nothing for say 60 seconds
then teminates,  Below I have modified the bat file to call the pause program.

rem Reboot
if errorlevel=52 goto pause
rem Crash
if errorlevel=1 goto main
rem Normal ShutDown
if errorlevel=0 goto down
rem Else Restart
goto main
rem pause is a program you must write.
goto main
