Symptoms

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.

Cause

Windows 95 removes the TSRs for these programs from the Autoexec.bat file and places them in the Winstart.bat file.

Status

This behavior is by design.

More information

Windows 95 moves the following TSRs to the Winstart.bat file:

Btrieve:
   Brequest.exe
				
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 use the Winstart.bat file for setting environment variables.
