How can I stop the installation of My Briefcase during NT installation?

A. Its possible to stop the installation of the syncapp.exe which is responsible for the "My Briefcase" icon by editing two files.

  1. Copy the I386 folder from the NT installation CD to a harddisk
  2. Use Notepad to open the file Layout.inf file in the root of I386.
  3. Search for syncapp.exe and place a semi-colon in front of it:
    ;syncapp.exe=1,,28672,,,,,2,0,0
  4. Save the file. Now edit the file Txtsetup.sif using notepad, again in the root of I386
  5. Search for syncapp.exe and place a semi-colon in front of it:
    ;syncapp.exe=1,,,,,,,2,0,0
  6. Install as normal

If you wanted to enable the installation of My Briefcase again edit the files layout.inf and txtsetup.sif and remove the semi-colon in front of syncapp.exe.
