JSI Tip 0571 - How do I remove the Recycle Bin during an unattended install?

Create a DELcycl.inf which contains:

Signature = "$Windows NT$"

AddReg = AddReg
DelReg = DelReg
UpdateInis = UpdateInis



Create a $EOM$ folder in the i386 root on your distribution server and copy DELcycl.inf to it. Edit or create a Cmdlines.txt in the $EOM$ folder which contains:

"rundll32 setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 128 .\DELcycl.inf"
