Windows Vista build 5712 is a build of Windows Vista, which was shared online on 9 October 2006 only in Simplified Chinese.[1] Despite the build number being higher than the official release candidate, it was compiled five days earlier, in a similar fashion to Windows 7 build 7106 (winmain), Windows 8 build 8277 and Windows 10 build 10102 (winmain prs). Also, this build is still labeled as "Pre-RC 1" on the desktop watermark, despite being compiled at the same time as the later compile of build 5552, which reverts the "Pre-RC 1" label back to "RC 1" on the watermark.

This build includes VoteNow.exe but it does not function since it requires a SOAP request from an internal Microsoft server.
