Self-Host Vote (known by Windows as VoteNow.exe) is a special file that appears in various builds of Windows Longhorn, including 4033, 4039, 4042, 4053, 4084 and 4093. The idea of it was to give the employees using the build a way to vote about the quality of the build. After about four hours, the notification which leads to this file should pop up in the bar, however as The Collection Book points out, it is broken and as such, the text will not display.

Some other information was given here. It appears that the application is broken because the web links that it relies on were to a Microsoft intranet, which was eventually taken down after Longhorn's development.
