Changes[edit | edit source]
- Changed the icons, hibernation and safe to shutdown screens 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.
vercommand for Command Prompt now reports the same version string as in the header rather then printing out the version number only.
- The shell has seen an update, with new branding and a new Active Desktop wallpaper. However, the old NT 5.0 branding is still present in a few places, like the bootloader and the "Logon Screensaver".
Bugs and quirks[edit | edit source]
- Booting from the CD results in a quick crash. This bug persists until build 2020.
- 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.
- An error might occur during the network setup. If this happens, restart the computer and go through the user information portion of setup again. This bug persists until build 2000.
