Windows Longhorn build 4053 is a Milestone 7 build of the Microsoft Windows "Longhorn" operating system. This build is reported to have leaked on 1 March 2004. Overall, this build is very similar to build 4051, but with networking bugs patched.

Bugs and quirks[edit | edit source]

  • The normal method of creating user accounts does not work in this build. However, accounts can still be created by going to run and typing in control userpasswords2.
  • The most frequently used items list of the Start menu resets itself after every reboot.
  • If Windows Explorer or Internet Explorer stops responding, the classic title bar may be seen.
  • Notifications tend to re-appear quite a lot. Fully closing the notifications may take several attempts.
  • After the first reboot when upgrading from Build 4033, an "Unknown problem in upgrade happened" error will appear, clicking "OK" will cause the machine to restart. After restarting, setup will continue normally until another reboot takes place, in which "The file WinSetup.dll could not be loaded or is corrupt. Setup cannot continue." will appear. Clicking OK will restart the computer and on some machines, there will be no mouse and keyboard support.

Setup[edit | edit source]

Setup is mostly similar to previous builds of Longhorn. You can also upgrade to this build from previous builds too.
