Windows ME build 2348 is the Developer Release 2 build of Windows ME, found on Crazybytes 42. According to Thurrott, it was released to testers on 1999-08-06.[1]

This build incorporates the Automatic Updates feature which is included in subsequent versions of the operating system. Windows Media Player has also been updated to 7.0.

Enhancements[edit]

System Restore[edit]

This build contains the System Restore executable and registry keys, although even if the key [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD\_VxDMon,"SystemRestore"] is set to Y, opening RSTRUI.EXE will only lead to a PCHealth error.

System File Protection[edit]

System File Protection is included but not enabled by default. The [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD\_VxDMon,"SystemFileProtection "] registry key has to be set to Y in order to be enabled. After the registry key has been updated, the system must be rebooted for the System File Protection to become active. However, this can often lead to the system hanging upon logon due to a MS-DOS Prompt window opening on login that hangs.
