Windows XP build 2496 is an unleaked build of Windows XP. A reference to this build was found in the German version of the Windows XP Step by Step Interactive Tour. A reference to the Professional SKU can be found in \base\ntsetup\opktools\winpeoc\xwinpe\docs\winpe build process.doc in the aforementioned operating system as well as a reference to the IA-64 architecture.

Professional reference[edit | edit source]

Obtain     a base Windows XP Professional Setup CD image from which the Windows PE     will be built. One can use an install CD; I copied the contents of \\winbuilds\release\main\usa\2496\x86fre\pro     to a local directory, D:\images\2496-x86fre-pro. I     also shared this directory (as \\t-jpol-dev\pro) to t-jpol-dev\Guest,     granting RLX privileges as well.

IA-64 reference[edit | edit source]

mkimg \\winbuilds\release\main\usa\2496\ia64fre\pro D:\images\winpe-2496-ia64. This single error is reported: “Error in copying (2) : \\winbuilds\release\main\usa\2496\ia64fre\pro\ia64\efinvr.exe -> D:\images\winpe-build-ia64\IA64\system32\efinvr.exe”. There is a bug in the OPK documentation; the file efinvr.exe must also be copied from the tools directory in the 3<sup>rd</sup> step above when making an image for IA64.
