Bugs and quirks[edit | edit source]

Graphics driver[edit | edit source]

The default VGA graphics adapter is very buggy, often having the screen flicker through resolutions and cannot have resolutions higher than 800x600 pixels. However, if you upgrade from a previous build, you can have 1024x768 and higher.

Horizontal icon spacing[edit | edit source]

There is a quirk in this build, which is that icons do not have horizontal spacing by default. This quirk would persist in builds that come from vbl_media branches up until build 5491.

Installation[edit | edit source]

Upgrade[edit | edit source]

The wallpaper gets changed to img22 when upgrading from Windows XP, Windows Vista build 5435 or build 5461.

Explorer[edit | edit source]

It is impossible to access CDs and DVDs through Explorer in this build, since Explorer thinks the disc is blank.

Gallery[edit | edit source]
