ACPIOFF pack and patch for win 9x / 3x

Recommended Posts

ACPIOFF is a win.com patch (currently only for Windows 98SE), and a small 16-bit WinOff16 utility that both allow you to shutdown Windows and invoke the utility from FreeDOS, FDAPM.COM, with the POWEROFF command, which tries to shutdown the machine through the interfaces APM and ACPI.

You already can use winoff16 as Windows only (not machine) restarter, if just delete fdapm from windir.

It is will work with both 3X and 9X. But you can't do windows only restart, if using 9X with USB2 drivers!

on my machines, 9x successfully disable all usb cntrlrs, when exit in real mode (ie for executing fdapm or winexit), but can't re-enable it, when doing second start. machine just halted.
