Windows Longhorn build 3718 is the last Milestone 3 build of Windows Longhorn. It is very similar to build 3713 in features and functionality, but the Tablet PC features cannot be installed despite the files being present on this build's component media. Alongside, Media Center is now referred as "Media Center" in Add or Remove Programs instead of "Freestyle". Unlike most later builds and even a few earlier builds, it is very stable and is less likely to have Explorer crash.

Bugs and quirks[edit | edit source]

  • Classic View is missing in the Control Panel and many applets are missing. Some of the Control Panel applets can be run by running their executable from Run or Command Prompt. However, if the user upgrades from a previous build and its Control Panel was on Classic View prior to the installation, then the Control Panel can be viewed in Classic View, but the user then cannot switch back to Default View.
  • MyTVApp now crashes when it is opened, although the Avalon Trust Manager still opens without problems.
  • Desktop Composition Engine requires either compatible hardware or VMware Workstation 6.5.x to work (just 6.5x compatibility won't work).
