  2. It would vary by what options you installed, I suspect. But take a look at
    the contents of the i386 folder on the distribution media. That's the 32-bit
    stuff.

  3. Hello,
    One thing to note when looking at the i386 folder on an X64 CD\DVD.
    Most of the files in that folder have a W prepended to the name of the file.
    This is removed during the installation to the syswow64 folder, but it may
    cause some confusion if you are looking at the folder on the CD.
    32-bit files on the CD for the most part have the W prepended to tell them
    apart from 64-bit files.
    This helps with installing and caching of files.
    Thanks,
    Darrell Gorter[MSFT]

    There are two folders that contains files, i386 and Amd64.
    Do you mean i386 has the 32bit files and Amd64 has the
    64 bit ?

    cause some confusion if you are looking at the folder on the CD.

    I think I am going to install it on one of the empty hard drives
    I have, and get the list.
    Normally MS releases the lists, but haven't doing so after Win Me.

  6. Oh, right, good reminder! I knew that, but had forgotten. Thanks.

  7. correct. With the caveat, as Darrell points out, that many of the files in
    the i386 folder have a prepended "w" to the file name.

    I just looked at the properties of my SysWOW64 directory and there are
    1,640 files and 95 folders. You'll get quite a lengthy list!

    Mine is 1732 files, I think installation files are about 1470
    or less.
    I sorted the files by date, and counted files dated 2005.

  10. Hello,
    Open the \windows\inf\layout.inf file
    Look for the section [sourcedisksfiles.amd64] Should be at the bottom on
    the file.
    Example of a couple of entries
    w_isdel.exe = 55,,222222,,,,,83,0,0,_isdel.exe
    w_setup.dll = 55,,222222,,,,,83,0,0,_setup.dll
    wisetup.exe = 55,,222222,,,,,83,0,0,setup.exe

    From the example above.
    Filename w_isdel.exe is copied from the i386 source folder to the
    \syswow64\installshield folder and renamed to isdel.exe

    The 55 denotes the source folder is the i386 folder on the CD
    from section [SourceDisksNames.amd64]
    The 83 means the file is copied to destination of SysWOW64\InstallShield


    From the section, this is destination
    [WinntDirectories]
    list of folders syswow64 and below.
    82 = SysWOW64
    83 = SysWOW64\InstallShield
    84 = SysWOW64\wbem
    85 = SysWOW64\export
    86 = SysWOW64\wbem\AdStatus
    87 = SysWOW64\ias
    93 = SysWOW64\Drivers
    94 = SysWOW64\usmt
    113 = SysWOW64\1025
    114 = SysWOW64\1028
    115 = SysWOW64\1031
    116 = SysWOW64\1033
    117 = SysWOW64\1037
    118 = SysWOW64\1041
    119 = SysWOW64\1042
    120 = SysWOW64\1054
    121 = SysWOW64\2052
    122 = SysWOW64\3076
    256 = syswow64\mui
    Thanks,
    Darrell Gorter[MSFT]
