How to replace 16bit Setup.exe - untested FIXME

  1. Run Setup.exe on your development system.
  2. While the setup is running, open your system's temporary folder and copy _ins576._mp, _wutl95.dll and Zdatai50.dll to another folder.
  3. Rename the _ins576._mp file to Install.exe. You do not need to rename _wutl95.dll or Zdatai50.dll.
  4. After you run the Media Build Wizard, replace Setup.exe with Install.exe and place Zdatai50.dll and _wutl95.dll in the same folder. Then have your users run Install.exe.
