Windows Vista build 5252 is an unleaked pre-Beta 2 build of Windows Vista. This build was showcased in a blog from Chinese IT consumption portal Yesky.[1] This is one of first builds to have everything merged from other branches such as vbl_ux_dev_checkin to the winmain branch.

Changes[edit | edit source]

  • The background used during installation has been changed to the aurora found in build 5259. The older setup layout from build 5098 is still retained in this build.
  • The Start orb, first seen in build 5212 (vbl_ux_dev_checkin), has been changed to appear closer to the final iteration present in the RTM build. It also features the new Start menu that was first seen in build 5221 (vbl_ux_dev_checkin_gamesux).
  • A new desktop wallpaper has been introduced, which replaces the wallpaper first seen in build 5054.
  • The Windows Explorer banner background has been changed to a static blue-green gradient.
  • This build marks the first appearance of both Windows AntiSpyware (later renamed to Windows Defender) and Windows Mail, the successor to Outlook Express.
  • A new applet called "Performance Center" as well, which would be known as "Performance Information and Tools" in the final version of Vista.
