Windows 8 build 8064 is a Milestone 3 build of Windows 8, which was uploaded to BetaArchive on 23 January 2021. This build was released to Microsoft partners through the Ecosystem Engineering Access Program (EEAP) and as is common for such builds coming from the fbl_eeap branch, it had the entire Metro user interface stripped out at compile time and therefore cannot be redpilled.

It is the last known build of Windows 8 that has the wordoku puzzle background with the leak warning; it would be replaced with the Windows 7 logon wallpaper in build 8102. It is also the last build to feature the classic built-in games (such as Solitaire and Minesweeper) from Windows 7.

Changes[edit | edit source]

  • This is one of the first known builds to use the "Windows Developer Preview" branding on the boot screen.
  • Caption buttons on window title bars are now the same size as the ones found in Windows 7, unlike previous builds of Windows 8.
  • The default user icon has been updated to the one used in the official Developer Preview build, despite background being black instead of green.
  • The BSOD is now reminiscent of the RTM build.

Bugs and quirks[edit | edit source]

Installation[edit | edit source]

Compatibility[edit | edit source]

To install or run this build in VMware Workstation, you must set the hardware compatibility to versions 8.x or 9.x; otherwise, a partially garbled system crash message will appear upon boot.

Windows Setup[edit | edit source]

It is recommended to use the keyboard in order to navigate through the initial setup interface as a bug prevents the mouse cursor from being normally displayed.

OOBE[edit | edit source]

  • The System Preparation Tool does not properly function in this build and will run into an error, regardless of whether the system is being prepared for the OOBE or for audit mode.
  • Like previous unredpilled builds of Windows 8, the OOBE background is improperly displayed.
