Windows 2000 build 1964 is a Beta 3 build of Windows 2000, which was originally found on 23 June 2015.[1]

It lacks a proper branding, having "2000 Server" branded in places, "NT 5.0 Beta 2" branded in others, and "2000 Professional" branded in winver.

It also requires the exact BIOS date or it will encounter an error trying to install.

Changes[edit | edit source]

  • Changed the icons and safe to shutdown screen to the versions used in the RTM.
  • The "Network and Dial-Up Connections" applet received another new icon, now with the computers overlapping.
  • The icons in the toolbar of Windows Explorer and Internet Explorer have been slightly shrunken in spacing between them.

Bugs and quirks[edit | edit source]

  • The banner of the Configure Your Server Wizard cannot be displayed, as instead an error page takes place.
  • The About box of Internet Explorer 5 does not display the version number, as the "Version" string was left blank. This can also be seen in build 1965.
