Windows Vista build 5744 is the official Release Candidate 2 build of Windows Vista, which was released to beta testers on 6 October 2006.

The name "RC2" is actually a misnomer; during the final stages of Vista's development, Microsoft encountered several hiccups that resulted in delays to the RTM. RC2 was released in order to instill confidence in reviewers and manufacturers; in other words, it was released to show the progress Microsoft had made since the last release candidate. As this build belonged to an internal RTM branch, it was never intended to be released to the general public.
