Windows Longhorn build 4029 (Lab06_n) is a Milestone 6 build of Windows Longhorn. On 23 January 2020, this build was listed on a thread by Grabberslasher, founder of the UX.Unleaked blog, to be released to the BetaArchive FTP, and was released as the first two builds of his 33 Longhorn/Vista builds on 24 January 2020, alongside build 4017.[1]

Setup[edit | edit source]

Although setup overall is similar to previous builds of Windows Longhorn, the fonts that are used during setup now use ClearType.

New features and changes[edit | edit source]

  • This build includes a new red aurora wallpaper. The "longhorn milestone 5" text has also been replaced with "LONGHORN M6".
  • The Aero Wizards debuted in this build. The CD Writing Wizard is one of these Aero Wizards, which allows users to burn ISO images to an optical disc.
  • 3D icons are included within the Games Center (which would later be renamed to "Games Explorer").
  • The taskbar clock that was present in builds 4015 to 4029 has been removed in favor of the sidebar clock.
  • Windows Messenger has been updated to version 6.0.
  • Many applets (such as My Computer and the Sync Manager) have gained new icons.
  • The Explorer interface has been refined. Notably the "Windows flag" throbber has been removed and the navigation bar now has a dedicated theme resource.
  • Although MyTVApp still exists, it no longer displays anything rather than the side panel.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • While the Desktop Composition Engine works in this build, the Desktop Composition Engine does not enable Direct3D shaders due a bug. Because the Aero Glass borders rely on these shaders to function, it is not possible to enable the borders at this time.
