Every page about a Windows build must contain the "Infobox Windows build" template, which provides essential information about a Windows compile.

buildtag

Required: The whole known build string, for example 6.3.9431.0.winmain_bluemp.130615-1214 or 5.1.2428.idx01.010129-1827. For builds of Windows versions that have a custom build tag scheme that is separate from the actual Windows one, such as Windows Phone 8 or Windows Home Server 2011, this should be the custom tag.

build of

Required: Link to the article about the Windows version that this build belongs to, e.g. [[Windows 8.1]] or [[Windows Server 2003]]. Standard wikitext syntax can also be used to change the displayed text, e.g. [[Windows XP Media Center Edition|Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005]] will show up as Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005, but will link to the main MCE article.

version, version-link

This describes the top "Build of Windows ..." field in the infobox.

Note: This is now deprecated as of July 2020 and should by replaced by build of accordingly:

  1. Infobox only contains version
    | build of = [[Windows <version>]]
  2. Infobox contains both version and version-link
    | build of = [[<version-link>|Windows <version>]]

Replace <version> and <version-link> with the values of the respective fields.

image

File name of a screenshot without the initial File: prefix. If not provided, a placeholder will be used instead.

imagecaption

Caption to annotate image.

arch

CPU architectures on which the build is available (leaked/released).

compiled

Date of compilation. In Windows versions preceding Windows XP this should generally be the latest timestamp from a release. Since Windows XP the compilation timestamp forms the last part of a buildtag.

timebomb

This field describes the timebomb type and date. For fixed date timebombs, this should be a date in the ISO 8601 format, i.e. 2004-01-14. The template will automatically calculate the number of days between the compilation and expiration dates.

If the build counts its expiration date from the original install date, this field should be the number of days before expiration, preceded by a plus sign, i.e. + 444 days.

emulator

List of emulators or hypervisors that the build is confirmed to work in.

base

For versions that use a separate build tag scheme, this is the build tag reported by the Windows kernel.

winver

File name of a screenshot of winver or About dialog in older Windows versions without the initial File: prefix.

sku

List of SKUs in which the build is available (leaked/released) separated by <br> tags, preferably from low-end to high-end

key

Product key required when installing.

ba

BetaArchive database search query - this parameter should be the release GUID, if this is a specific BA release, or a string query that is as specific as possible.

rivals

Use the rivals template to link pages on TCB & BA.
