Windows 98 build 1721.3 is the official Release Candidate 1 build of Windows 98. This build was scene leaked in 1998, but had been lost for many years and wasn't found until 6 June 2014.

This build was released with the following information from Microsoft to beta testers during the time:

Dear Windows 98 Beta Testers,

We have taken the incredibly fast feedback we recieved on 1720 as well as
fixes that were already in the works and we are closer than ever to RC1.
We have implemented some core fixes which should help Power Management,
Multimedia and Dial-Up Networking. We would like all of you to download this
build if possible and give it a thorough run through.

Note: You do not have to download this build to stay active; this is an
optional download.
