Codenames[edit source]

Windows 7's codename is Blackcomb and Vienna. Even in the List of Microsoft codenames in Wikipedia also says that Windows 7's formerly codenames is Blackcomb and Vienna. --Yue Ling (talk) 09:15, 23 March 2019 (UTC)

Erm, no. According to the Windows "Blackcomb" page, Windows 7 had little to nothing in common with the original ideology. AlphaBeta also removed these codenames from the Microsoft Windows page. Don't rely on Wikipedia. BF10 (talk) 13:42, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
But Blackcomb was renamed to Vienna in 2006 and eventually Windows 7 in 2007... --Yue Ling (talk) 13:05, 26 April 2019 (UTC)
Thats what you say. I say that Windows Longhorn renamed to Vienna renamed to Blackcomb renamed to 7 renamed to 6 renamed to Vista. --LilShootDawg (talk) 15:16, 26 April 2019 (UTC)
(See BF10's thread) There isnt much information about the codename 'Vienna' known to exist. Noserver (talk) 23:24, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

Possible new build ep. 1[edit source]

Hey, I think I found evidence of a possible build 7007. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/openspecs/windows_protocols/ms-rprn/e81cbc09-ab05-4a32-ae4a-8ec57b436c43 Diyamund (talk) 22:19, 29 October 2021 (UTC)

According to this link, there's a reference to Windows 2000 build 1382 in same page. But the page to this build was deleted 10 days ago. I doubt that this build will be documented on wiki. XPSrv (talk) 12:24, 28 May 2022 (UTC)

Possible new build ep. 2[edit source]

I founded my builds. So i have a build call 7601.24384.amd64fre.win7sp1_ldr_escrow.190220-1800 in a samsung computer and my mom's computer. 2001:f90:40c0:a072:1e7:d292:af5:cf60 15:00, 28 May 2022 (UTC+08:00)

I'm not sure, but there's a high chance that it's a RTM/SP1 update build. And those aren't allowed here unless there's a valid reason (having a timebomb or some notable changes over original build) for that. XPSrv (talk) 12:18, 28 May 2022 (UTC)
So what do win7sp1_ldr_escrow mean? 2001:f90:40c0:a072:3944:c482:71be:47de 09:41, 11 June 2022 (UTC+8)
Later updates for Windows 7 came from the win7sp1_ldr_escrow branch. Offtopic: One of the last non-ESU updates for Windows 7 was built on 2020-01-02, 12 days before Windows 7's end of support date. The build tag for that update is 7601.24545.win7sp1_ldr_escrow.200102-1707. Nara Insider (talk) 06:29, 11 June 2022 (UTC)

Possible new build ep. 3[edit source]

There is a build call 7600.16385.win7_gdr_embedded_dev_ctp2.091030-1800 that was referenced along Windows 8 build 7680. What do win7_gdr_embedded_dev_ctp2 branch mean?

  • Update: I also founded 7600.16385.win7_gdr_embedded_dev.091024-0100.
  • Update 2: I founded 7600.16385.win7_gdr_embedded_dev.100301-1900 and 7600.16385.win7_gdr_embedded_dev.100225-1900. 2001:F90:40C0:A072:5C8A:A641:8613:10BD 23:46, 25 June 2022 (UTC)
Windows Embedded 7. It's in the name... --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 11:56, 26 June 2022 (UTC)
But the build number was 7600. 2001:F90:40C0:A072:5C8A:A641:8613:10BD 03:12, 27 June 2022 (UTC)
