  • This build introduces Imaging developed by Wang Laboratories, which was later bought by Kodak.
  • Microsoft Write has been replaced with WordPad.
  • The "Select Components" page of Setup is now fully functional.
  • The icon set from Microsoft Plus!, stored in COOL.DLL, has been introduced.
  • The Start menu banner has been updated to resemble the RTM.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • When upgrading from build 1234, you will be asked to overwrite newer files, due to these included in this build have a older version number than the files included in the previous build. This affects BMP, ANI, CUR and Pinball files and happens in the final phase.
  • When shutting down the system, sometimes the desktop icons will remain in place.
