Windows 2000 build 1911 is a beta 3 build of Windows 2000. It does not offer much over previous builds. However, it does include a few oddities. It marks the beginning of the transition to the 'Beta 3' stage, with some elements being rebranded to 'Beta 3' already. However, many of the elements are not updated, and still, say 'Beta 2'. As this build was compiled a week before the changing of the name to 'Windows 2000', it retains all of its 'NT' elements. This build introduces new icons, which were also used in build 1946 before being replaced in build 1964 with the icons used in the RTM.

New features and changes[edit | edit source]

Control Panel[edit | edit source]

  • This build adds shortcuts to the "Network Connections" and "Scheduled Tasks" folders into the Control Panel, but with the generic folder icon set to be displayed for the former one, while the "Administrative Tools" one received a new icon. Also, folders are now placed before applets.
  • The "Folder Options" applet received a slightly updated icon, which adds a gradient to the folder and a more blueish accent to the tools.
  • The "Add/Remove Programs" applet (APPWIZ.CPL) no longer shows "Microsoft Internet Explorer" on the title bar. It also no longer uses an IE document, but now a generic program icon.

Deprecations[edit | edit source]

This is the last build of Windows 2000:

  • which uses Microsoft Sans Serif as the default system font. However, some copies already come with the theme as seen in the RTM with Tahoma set as the default font.
  • to have the ability to change screen resolution and color depth during setup.
  • to use the GINA design introduced in build 1773. However, it was ported to Windows NT 4.0 Terminal Server Edition.
  • to use the winver design introduced in Windows NT 3.5 build 612.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • This build is incompatible with the NTLDR of build 1946, making dual boot impossible. At boot, it will bugcheck with error code KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED or 0x0000001E.
