Windows Me build 2465 is a pre-Beta 3 build of Windows Me. This build was first mentioned in Paul Thurrott's "The Road to Gold: The development of Windows Me" article, where it is stated it was released to testers on 11 February 2000.[1] It was uploaded to BetaArchive's FTP server on 27 January 2020 by ReflectiaX.[2]

Changes[edit | edit source]

  • Updated the setup interface to resemble the RTM.
  • Updated the boot screen to the one that is used in the final product.
  • Updated Windows Installer to version 1.2.
  • Updated MSN Gaming Zone.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

S3 drivers[edit | edit source]

  • Upon using S3 video adapters, Windows will complain that its own drivers will not work properly, thus the display will be stuck at 640x480x4bpp. This error will also appear upon every boot and other drivers cannot be installed correctly, meaning that S3 video adapters are not recommendable for this build.

Neptune reference[edit | edit source]

A total of 8 files with the version number 5.50.5116.1 were found in this Millennium build, but it is unknown whether this Neptune build ever existed.

Some speculate this would've been a Milestone 2 build. It would've been compiled someday after 11 December 1999, meaning it would be one of the last Neptune builds before the Neptune project was canceled in January 2000.
