Windows 95 Installation Information

FaxMan Jr. is multithreaded and requires a version of the Microsoft COM libraries that support threaded objects. These libraries are part of Microsoft’s DCOM installation.


DCOM is already installed on Windows 98,ME, NT4, Windows 2000/XP. If a client has installed Internet Explorer Version 4 or above on a Windows 95 machine it is also present there. Only Windows 95 machines that do not have Internet Explorer version 4 installed will not have DCOM installed. In this case you will need to install DCOM prior to installing FaxMan Jr.


One way to check if DCOM is installed from your installation script is to check in the registry.


 Key: "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\OLE"

 ValueName: "EnableDCOM"

 Value: "Y" or "N"

Regardless of this value the presence of this ValueName indicates that the necessary files are installed.


If DCOM is not installed DCOM will need to be installed before the FaxMan Jr. components can be registered. So install DCOM98 using the following command line parameter to

run in silent mode:


and if you want to handle the reboot from within your installation script use the following command line parameter to prevent reboot:



If you want to continue your installation once the computer has rebooted add the following entry to the registry before you reboot.



 Key: "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce"

 ValueName: "Your App"

 Value: "c:\mypath\setup.exe"

Where "c:\mypath\setup.exe" points to your setup package.
