Changes[edit | edit source]

  • Setup's appearance has been changed in this build:
    • The sidebar on the left side has had its color changed from gray to black.
    • Setup billboards have their Windows 95-esque appearance replaced with a new style where the text is now sliding from the right and shown on the background.
  • A new bug reporting utility was introduced, along with a warning asking if you are a part of the Memphis beta program.
  • Task Scheduler is also included now.
  • The "Scanners and Cameras" Control Panel applet received a new icon, which would be replaced again in build 1500.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • When setup is restarting into the second stage, a fatal exception 0E at 0028:C003BDF7 in VXD VFAT(01) + 00009AE7 may occur. If this happens, press Ctrl+Alt+Del to continue.
