Windows Longhorn build 4033 (idx01) is a Milestone 6 build of Windows Longhorn. On 2020-01-23, this build was listed on a thread by UX.Unleaked blog founder Grabberslasher to be released to the BetaArchive FTP, and was later released in the sixth set of his 33 Longhorn/Vista builds on 2020-01-29, alongside Windows Vista build 5487.[1] This build is only available in the IA-64 architecture.

Bugs and quirks[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.
  • Search is broken and as a result, it crashes explorer.exe.
  • WinFS is not present.
  • USB Mass Storage is broken.
  • The file saving dialog is broken.
  • Sidebar is not present.
  • This build uses the i386-style setup instead of using install.wim.
  • The login screen has no background, defaulting to black instead.
  • The TCP/IP stack is broken, sometimes it functions, sometimes it doesn't.
  • Windows Product Activation is absent.
