Bugs[edit | edit source]

Installation[edit | edit source]

As typical of builds in this build range, it tends to take a long time to install and can be unstable.

No mouse driver in WinPE[edit | edit source]

On some computers and virtualizers, the WinPE doesn't support the mouse, so you must use the keyboard to navigate the WinPE. This seems to be related to using a PS/2 mouse, as USB mice seems to work fine for the setup.

WordPad[edit | edit source]

WordPad does not start, as it will display with Failed to create empty document instead.

Outlook Express[edit | edit source]

Outlook Express does not start due to registry errors and certain dependencies on WinFS.

Themes[edit | edit source]

  • The Windows Classic theme will not function due to a broken Windows Classic.theme file.

Explorer[edit | edit source]

  • CD and DVD drives behave like local disks.
  • Help and Support crashes Explorer.
  • Explorer can randomly crash for no reason under normal use, such as adding Sidebar tiles, but this depends on the hardware being used.

Control Panel[edit | edit source]

  • Hardware and Devices folder does not open.
  • Sounds Control Panel applet is missing.
  • Task Scheduler from Control Panel shows a nameless folder and generic folder icon.
  • Phone and Modem Options Control Panel applet name is empty.
  • Computer Management displays script errors due to missing registry entries.
  • Device Manager has a bug that the Hardware Wizard Control Panel applet is missing, so you cannot update drivers. You can install drivers by using devcon from the Windows XP DDK.

Creating folders[edit | edit source]

The folder creation bug from build 4074 is still present in this build. You can apply a registry key by the following:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.Folder]
@="Folder"

DirectX[edit | edit source]

Although the Desktop Window Manager is present and can be activated by pressing Ctrl+Shift+F9 as in Windows Server 2008 build 4066, it will black screen due to a broken DirectX installation. It can fixed via the instructions listed on the Windows Aero page.

Graphics[edit | edit source]

Enable VGA Mode after installing video drivers or the system will result in a blue screen of death with a error code 0x000000B4.

Windows Product Activation[edit | edit source]

Windows Product Activation is missing.

Safe mode[edit | edit source]

The safe mode is completely broken and results in a blue screen of death.
