This build is only available in the IA-64 architecture.
Bugs and quirks[edit | edit source]
Desktop Composition Engine[edit | edit source]
While the Desktop Composition Engine works in this build, the Desktop Composition Engine does not enable Direct3D shaders due to a bug. Because the Aero Glass borders rely on these shaders to function, it is not possible to enable the borders at this time.
Explorer[edit | edit source]
- Search and cut/copy-pasting are broken as it crashes explorer.exe.
- WinFS is not present.
- USB Mass Storage is broken.
- The file saving dialog is broken if explorer.exe is running.
TCP/IP bug[edit | edit source]
The TCP/IP stack malfunctions most of the time.
Windows Product Activation[edit | edit source]
Windows Product Activation is missing.
Timebomb[edit | edit source]
Unlike other Longhorn builds, it contains a broken timebomb and can be installed on the current date.
