How do I disable the Installation of Exchange during installation?

A. If you want to stop the installation of the Exchange client during installation of NT then perform the following:

  1. Copy the I386 directory from the Windows NT CD-ROM to a directory
  2. In the I386 folder expand the file syssetup.in_
    C:\> expand Syssetup.in_ Syssetup.inf
  3. Rename Syssetup.in_ to Syssetup.old as otherwise the installation will use the compressed version
  4. Edit the file Syssetup.inf and comment out the MSMAIL.INF entry in the \[BaseWinOptionsInfs\]
  5. Save the file and install as normal

Below is an example of the edited file

\[BaseWinOptionsInfs\]
accessor.inf
communic.inf
games.inf
imagevue.inf
mmopt.inf
;msmail.inf
multimed.inf
optional.inf
pinball.inf
wordpad.inf
