Windows Me build 2332.2 is the earliest released build of Windows Me. This build was released to developers on 23 July 1999[1].

This is the first known build to remove the ability to use MS-DOS in real mode. Due to this, Windows no longer truly exits to MS-DOS upon displaying the safe to shutdown screen. Instead, the shutdown screen, temporarily changed to a blue screen (although not necessarily a crash screen) as of this build, is now displayed by the 32-bit virtual machine manager (VMM32.VXD), which then halts the system upon showing the message. Also in possible relation to the removal of real mode DOS, there is no actual boot screen besides the "first boot" one.

The shell has been updated to correspond with Windows 2000, including changes to the web view and icons. New customization options have been introduced in Explorer and the Start menu. The Control Panel side pane now contains links to Windows Update and Windows 2000 Support.

This build is also remarkable for including 29 files from the Windows Neptune project, as well as files from previous Millennium builds with a version number of 5.00 rather than 4.90.

New features and changes[edit | edit source]

  • The setup procedure has been slightly reordered since Windows 98, so that it asks for user name, company name and serial key before restarting.
  • The new PCHealth framework for monitoring and reporting bugs is now included. Although there is no proper Help Center yet, there is a new HTML-based bug reporting application (PCHEALTH.EXE, resources in PCHRES.DLL).
  • All dialog boxes include an additional "Survey..." option to send feedback to the development team.
  • Hibernation is now supported without the need to install special drivers.
  • Although parts of the net crawling feature are already present in SHELL32.DLL, it's unknown if it's already functional and there is no UI to enable or disable it yet.
  • Add Network Place Wizard from Windows 2000 has been added.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

Installation[edit | edit source]

Hardware[edit | edit source]

  • Older USB drivers may not install, while drivers compatible with later versions of the operating system have chances of crashing.

Neptune reference[edit | edit source]

A total of 29 files with the version number 5.50.5022.1 and the product name Microsoft(R) Neptune (TM) Operating System were found in this Millennium build, but it is unknown whether this Neptune build ever existed.
