Windows XP Professional x64 Edition build 3790.2825 is the official Release Candidate build of Windows XP Professional x64 Edition Service Pack 2. It was released to testers on 15 November 2006, and was later released as a Windows Update package on 12 December 2006. The initial retail copy of the build was originally made available through a torrent file, although it is only 95.2% complete. A volume licensing image integrated with this update by a third party was later uploaded online on 11 March 2023; in a similar manner to the retail version, it also includes a currently-unspecified degree of corruption.

A fully-restored version of the retail copy with matching hashes expected by the torrent metadata was released by BetaWorld on 13 January 2024.[1]

Release e-mails[edit | edit source]

Initial release:

Windows Serviceability is pleased to announce the release of the Release Candidate (build 2825) of Service Pack 2 for Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP Professional x64 Edition.

This build contains:

  • Roll up of hotfixes released to date
  • Roll up of security updates released to date
  • Fixes for bugs reported by Beta customers and other known issues on previous Service Pack 2 builds

This build should be used for full deployment purposes, including pre-production testing or general compatibility testing. In order to have a stable test environment we strongly recommend un-installation of any previous SP2 builds from your machines before installing build 2825.

If you previously installed an integrated build of SP2, you cannot upgrade your system to build 2825 with this refresh; you will need to re-install a released version (RTM, SP1, or R2) of Windows Server 2003 before upgrading to build 2825. Go to https://connect.microsoft.com/content/content.aspx?SiteID=98&ContentID=1799 to find an evaluation copy of Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1.

Release notes for this build can be found at https://connect.microsoft.com/content/content.aspx?ContentID=3881&SiteID=98.

With SP2, Windows Server 2003 x64 Editions will start supporting 9 new languages: Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional, French, German, Italian, Korean, Portuguese (Brazilian). Russian, and Spanish. With RC, Windows Server 2003 x64 Edition is available in German for the first time.

Additionally, with RC, a MUI servicing package is available, which is specific to 3 components (Microsoft Management Console (MMC) 3.0, Windows Deployment Services and Microsoft File Server Management). This is not a re-release of the Windows Server 2003 MUI Pack. This MUI servicing pack is designed to increase the compatibility between MUI and localized languages for these 3 components. More information about this pack can be found at https://connect.microsoft.com/content/content.aspx?ContentID=3890&SiteID=98.

Windows Update servicing release:

Starting December 12th, the Windows Server 2003 SP2 RC build (build 2825) will be made available via Windows Update. This is primarily to test delivery of update build packages via WU. We would like as many Technical Beta participants as possible to try installing the RC build this way.

To try this out, prepare a Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 machine, then download and run the registry key file located at http://connect.microsoft.com/Downloads/DownloadDetails.aspx?SiteID=98&DownloadID=4711.

The following key values will be set in the registry:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\WS03SP2beta]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\WS03SP2beta\21124ad5-c8a4-4e4f-ac2d-95a6cb8fa72b]

Adding these values will enable users to see the RC via WU.

There is no code difference between the update RC build delivered via WU, and the standalone update RC build previously made available on the Connect site. Therefore, the same conditions and advice apply:

1. This build should be used for testing purposes only, including pre-production testing or general compatibility testing.

2. You must uninstall previous SP2 builds before picking up the latest beta build. This service pack build will only be provided to pre-SP2 systems, to simulate the real world as much as possible.

3. If you previously installed an integrated build of SP2, you cannot upgrade your system to build 2825 with this refresh.

a. You will need to re-install a released version (RTM, SP1, or R2) of Windows Server 2003 before upgrading to build 2825.

b. Go to https://connect.microsoft.com/content/content.aspx?SiteID=98&ContentID=1799 to find an evaluation copy of Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1.

We will not provide other pre-release builds via Windows Update. This is a one-time release, primarily to test delivery of update builds via WU.

Questions and feedback are welcome as always via the usual feedback forms and newsgroups, as well as ws03adm@microsoft.com.

Regards,

Windows Serviceability Team
