I have 95 and NT installed, how can I configure the applications to run on both?

A. While it is possible to add the windows95 system directory to the NT path (which would mean you would find any .dll's etc. associated with applications), many applications write a large amount of information to the registry which would be missing. The best approach, and one I have tested, is to just install the application twice to the same directory, once when you are booted into NT, and once when you are booted into 95. This has the effect of only having one set of exe's, but duplicates both .dll's and registry settings to both machines. Obviously the applications cannot be on an NTFS or FAT32 partition.
