Windows 95 build 950 r-2 is a pre-RTM build of Windows 95. This is an upgrade build, mostly unchanged from late 4xx and 5xx builds.

Changes[edit | edit source]

This is the first build to feature the boot screen as seen in the RTM. Builds 810, 812 and 842 also contain it, but they were compiled later than this build.

Release notes

************* PSG.MICROSOFT.COM FTP SERVER: 950r-2 Available **************** ************* PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS ***************************************

Build 950 of Windows 95 is now on the PSG.microsoft.com server.  Your account name and password as shown below still work for the logon to the server.

The file passwords in the \win95\retail directory are:

retail01.zip Parliament
retail02.zip Funkadelic

The win95_??.zip have no passwords.  You need all of the win95_??.zip files, and the retail01 and 02.zip files in order to install the build.

Download all of the files to a directory on your hard drive (like c:\bin), then unzip all of them, using theh passwords on the retail01 and 02.zip files.  Run the setup.exe that pops out, either from inside Windows or from DOS.  The order of preference on our end is:

Run setup.exe from inside of Windows 3.1 Run a clean install
Run setup from inside of an existing version of win95 on the machine. Run setup from dos

The important thing is installing it and taking a look, so it is no problem if you use the setup method that best suits you.

The admin.zip is for network administrators and is in \win95.  Please be sure to use the -d switch when unzipping it.  The password is Flashlight.

Unzip passwords are case-sensitive.

Your account logon password is case-sensitive, the account name is not, at least from my experience.  Before sending me a message about a problem with your account, please check this message to make sure you have all
of the "1s" and "ells" sorted out.  An 'l' looks a lot like a '1' but they're different.

Please download this if possible and test it.  All testers who received a 490 CD will receive a 950r-2 CD


Thanks
The Win 95 Team
