Windows Vista build 5284 (vbl media ehome) is a Beta 2 build of Windows Vista. This build was leaked by the BetaArchive user marcoguy on 2016-12-19. It includes new volume control icons, network icons, eHome features for Media Center, and notably a custom installer allowing the user to choose between Home Premium and Ultimate (however the regular one is also available to install additional SKUs and the Server SKUs). It is also the last build to have at least one reference to Longhorn. It is also the last leaked build of Vista that was compiled in 2005.

Installation[edit | edit source]
This build cannot be upgraded as setup will fail to copy the temporary files. Alongside, the $OEM$ folder in the /sources folder must be deleted or setup will fail with an "An error occurred while copying privates" message. The eHome OEM features in this build are only known to install properly on real hardware.
