Windows Me build 2487 is a beta 3 build of Windows Me.

Changes[edit | edit source]

  • The branding in System Properties was changed from Microsoft Windows Millennium to Microsoft Windows Me.

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 9 files with the version numbers 5.50.5116.1 and 5.50.5117.1 were found in this Windows Me build, but it is unknown whether these Neptune builds were ever compiled.

Some speculate they would've been builds from the Milestone 2. They would've been compiled someday after 11 December 1999, meaning they would be some of the last Neptune builds before the Neptune project was canceled in January 2000.
