Windows Nashville build 999 is a build of Windows Nashville. It was found on the third disc in the CrazyBytes 5 warez CD compilation. As of 2020, it is currently the only leaked build of Nashville.

The branding still says "Windows 95" in most places, except in Add/Remove Programs, where it says "Windows 96" if chosen to keep uninstall files, and in the Command Prompt, where the VER command reports "Windows Nashville".

New features and changes[edit | edit source]

  • Infrared driver support is installed in this build by default.

Shell features[edit | edit source]

  • The sliding effect for menus is also included.
  • This build includes a near-final version of Internet Explorer 2 (MSHTML.DLL), but with very early shell integration added on top. This includes changes to Windows Explorer (EXPLORER.EXE) that allow you to open websites or e-mail in the same Explorer window. However, the overall size of the Internet Explorer installation is much smaller than usual, and it is not possible to browse the web without installing a regular version of Internet Explorer on top. This way a proper IEXPLORE.EXE is installed, but it also seems to break the integrated web browsing capability.
  • Single click activate is added and can be enabled in the Folder Options. Alongside, hovering over icons results in the link being blue.

Application features[edit | edit source]

  • This build contains "Athena PIM", which was ultimately released as Microsoft Internet Mail and News in 1996 and later evolved into Outlook Express. The version of Athena PIM is 1.00.046 and the components for it is in the file ATHENA.DLL.
  • The Microsoft System Information has been added and can be run via MSINFO32.EXE.

Control Panel features[edit | edit source]

  • This build includes Power properties in the Control Panel by default, even if a battery is not installed.
  • Internet properties is included, which has the AutoDial properties and the ability to set up a proxy server.
  • Display Properties can show a settings icon on the taskbar.

Installation[edit | edit source]

Installation is similar to installing an upgrade version of Windows 95, but it doesn't always work and may BSOD during the second stage of setup. However, this can be fixed. An easier way of installing this build without having to upgrade from a previous build is to create a dummy NTLDR on the hard drive to trick Setup into thinking that Windows NT was installed.

Note: This build will not upgrade from Windows 95 if Windows 95 was installed on a FAT32 partition.
