If you have an OEM Windows 98fe, Windows 98se, Windows 95 CD you can extract the Installation Wizard from it.

Open up a MS-DOS Prompt / Command Prompt

Change to your CD-ROM Drive Letter. Example if yout CD-ROM is drive letter is D: type:


Press the <enter> key.

Next, you will need to change to the proper directory on the CD. Type:


Press the <enter> key.

Type in the command to extract the wizard using the following format:

mkcwrt /C:" /C mkcwrt.bat {CD-ROM drive letter} {drive/path}"

If your CD-ROM drive letter is D: and you would like to extract the wizard to C:\wizard you would us the following command:

mkcwrt /C:" /C mkcwrt.bat D: C:\wizard"

This will launch a second command prompt that extracts the wizard from the CD. It may take several minutes to complete depending on the speed of your CD-ROM.

You can now run the wizard from the folder you extracted it to.
