I would to extract a MS Cabinet file at system startup from the floppy to a virtual drive using EXTRACT.EXE.
I found Winlight, a DOS 7.1 and Windows 3.11 based system, designed to
help fixing a broken DOS system on old machines.
I decided to improve it, adding some commands.
Then, I need to compress the system into a Cabinet file, like it was on the original disk.
I found cabsdk, containing CABARC.EXE that runs under Windows 98 and IEXPRESS.EXE, running under Windows 2000, but,
my CAB file is not extracting, from the floppy.
I added the command ECHO ON to autoexec.bat and ran the system Step by Step. No error occurs, but the only file extracted is
DOSIDLE.EXE. It's size is 0 bytes.
But, running a MS-DOS 6.22 system on a Virtualbox VM, the Cabinet is extracted without problem.
Could some one help me, please ?
