Windows Me build 2447 is a post-Beta 2 build of Windows Me, which is mentioned on "The Road to Gold: The development of Windows Me" article by Paul Thurrott, where it is stated that this build was released to testers on 14 January 2000.[1] It was later found by Overdoze on 31 August 2022 and shared the next day.

Changes[edit | edit source]

  • This is the first known build to feature the color scheme from Windows 2000.
  • Re-added the safe to shutdown screen from Windows 95 and 98.
  • Updated the Startup Disk version string from Windows 98 [Version 4.10.2222] to Windows Millennium [Version 4.90.2447]. From this point onwards, the startup disk will be updated to match the system version.
  • Updated MSN Messenger to version 2.1.
  • Windows Movie Maker has a revamped interface with different timeline controls, removing the sidebar previously seen in build 2429.

Neptune reference[edit | edit source]

Two files named gemstar.sys and wstdecod.dll, with the version number 5.50.5116.1 were found in this Millennium build, but it is unknown whether this Neptune build was ever compiled.

Some speculate this would've been a Milestone 2 build.
