what's that for?

To safely remove the watermark.

I will try the x86 version in a virtual pc until I think it is worth upgrading from 7048, and there is an x64 edition leaked.

Has the start menu lag for clicking "All programs" been fixed for this release, as well as the issues with homegroups fiddling with my permissions?

hmmm for a full fresh install or upgrade from build 7000

Fresh install with all non-RTM builds, unless you are prepared for doing a clean install later if problems arise during the upgrade or after the upgrade.

Download this one: http://deepxw.blogspot.com/2009/01/downloa...st-version.html the patch is in that app, I used it as well on 7048.

Thanks.

Edit: This patch is for resetting the half-open connections, something I already did with another patch.

I thought this time after reformatting so many times for different builds I would try out the upgrade option.

Well, to start with it wanted almost 9gig free space to allow this (ideally 14).

Secondly, the installation took about an hour, which I thought was a bit much.

When it was done it had done a bit of damage.

My ESET Smart security 4 was corrupted and blocked all internet access no matter what I did, so I have to completely remove it, then the cheeky sods stuck shortcuts to WMP, IE and library in my taskbar AGAIN. I had it how I liked it thanks. It also removed 3 shortcuts from my start menu too, without warning. It did manage to save my desktop icons in the same place and remember my wallpaper, but thats about it.

It also forgot my superbar transparency settings too.

But what I did find annoying it after I removed eset and restarted, the network icon in the notifcation area is missing. There is only volume now, I've checked the notification settings and its set to show all.

All in all, my experience of upgrading was ****. If it keeps playing up I'll try a full install from scratch.

To safely remove the watermark.

do the old patches not work?

i noticed that the old watermark problem would cause problems in 7022 such as compatibility mode not working

hope this is not the case with build 7057 =)

None of the ones that I have been able to find for any of the older builds have worked. It mostly likely has something to do with the patches needing to be updated for changes in the OS code. I would not worry about it right now since RC is almost on the way. Once it releases, I am sure updated scripts will be all over the place for download.

You shouldn't run this build if you can't decide for yourself. What do you think is best?

I would recommend the fresh install route. The upgrade method has been hit and miss. Backup your data and start fresh.

I'm just saying that if you're unsure how to install a new (technically unofficial) build, you're probably better off just waiting for an RC or something.

They've changed the sounds in Media centre on this release, You now get a new anthem sound when it starts. That said, the vista noise was nice the first time but got old after hearing it for the 50000th time :p

Hm, thats lame, it sets that encryption setting to 128 bit.

Thats a good thing obviously for safety, but not for compatibility. If it says not all devices can handle 128 bit, chances are thats true - networking Windows 7 with anything other than Windows 7 is going to be a nightmare with this and the whole HomeGroup/libraries thing.

the first 2 times i rebootet and kept windows of explorer, internet-explorer and mspaint open, windows 7 restored all those after reboot. which surprised me and i liked this a lot, thought it was a new feature.

now it doesnt do that anymore. i googled and found out that already under windows xp there was an option to let explorer restore all previously opened windows after reboot, however i cant find this option under win7. ideas?

Have any of you tested ATI drivers on this build? If so any problems with CCC or 9.2 ?

Looks like XP user pics are making a comeback...yay! Am loving the new user pics - and some of them resemble XP's too.

It's weird and kind of uncanny how Windows 7 seems to be turning into the next XP, with the obsession for blue back again.

7056 running great on my computer but i find WMP 12 a lot buggier. First of all i've put all of my music files in music library and it takes SO LONG to automatically add the files into WMP. Plus if I manually do that,it doesn't work and it takes all albums folders outside the Artists' ones. Another bug i found is that the art cover of the album doesn't appear outside the folder any longer. Hopefully in the real Release Candidate (which should be compiled anytime now) all these annoyances will be solved.
