Windows Longhorn build 4032 is a Milestone 6 build of Windows Longhorn. A screenshot of the build was leaked on the BetaArchive Discord on 2018-11-27. On 2018-12-03, this build leaked to the BetaArchive FTP by ReflectiaX, along with 4020.

New features and changes[edit | edit source]

  • This build includes a new red aurora wallpaper. The "longhorn milestone 5" text has also been replaced with "LONGHORN M6".
  • The Aero Wizards debuted in this build. The CD Writing Wizard is one of these Aero Wizards, which allows users to burn ISO images to an optical disc.
  • 3D icons are included within the Games Center (which would later be renamed to "Games Explorer").
  • The taskbar clock that was present in builds 4015 to 4029 has been removed in favor of the sidebar clock.
  • The desktop also has a new icon, File a Longhorn bug, which leads to an internal webpage.
  • Windows Messenger has been updated to version 6.0.
  • Many applets (such as My Computer and the Sync Manager) have gained new icons.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • While the Desktop Composition Engine works again in this build, the Desktop Composition Engine defaults at the CPU processing due to a bug. This makes it impossible to enable the Aero Glass borders.

Installation[edit | edit source]

The installation media is not bootable due to missing bootcode. You must either start a clean install from an earlier version of Windows or use a disc image editing tool to add boot information extracted from another build's media such as build 4033.

Alongside, attempting to upgrade from an older build of Windows Longhorn results in a file copy error. This error does not occur when doing a clean install on top of an older build.
