Windows NT 3.1 build 404 is the March 1993 beta of Windows NT 3.1, which was only available in the Workstation edition for many years, until an Advanced Server version of this build was later found and shared on 26 March 2021 on BetaArchive.[1]

Changes[edit | edit source]

  • Changed the setup to resemble the RTM version.
  • Added some new applications like Mail and Schedule+ which are inherited from Windows for Workgroups 3.1.
  • Changed the default color scheme to match the one used in Windows 3.1 instead of the version used in Windows 3.0.
  • This is the first build of Windows NT to launch NTDETECT.COM to check for hardware. It bears the version number 1.0.
  • Program Manager now shows user and computer name in the window title bar.
  • This build updates the copyright date in certain About boxes from 1985-1992 to 1985-1993.
  • The S3 display driver has been updated to now also work with the 86c8xx line of adapters and the 86c928 adapter. It does however not work with the 86x, 96x and Trio32/64 lines of adapters.
  • "Disk Manager" has been renamed "Disk Administrator".
