Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

Does anyone have WinFS beta 1 around? I know it was released to MSDN, and they probably got rid of it already, since it was so long ago...

I take no responsibility for the content of the above website. I just found the link to this particular file somewhere else.

UPDATE: I have not ran the exe, nor will most likely ever. However, to get the exe file, please rename winfs to winfs.rar. You will then be able to view its contents.

Cool find :) It looks like the real deal - I'll install it in a virtual machine soon and try it out.

Uh oh...Problemo! :(

It seems to be looking for Beta 2 of the .Net Framework 2.0, which was current when WinFS Beta 1 came out - the final version is 2.0.50727. Has anyone got the version of the Framework that it's asking for, or alternatively is there a way of faking the version to it? Where exactly is it getting the version number of the installed version of the Framework - it must be a particular file or regkey surely? If we knew that, we could maybe fake the version number?

I found .NET 2.0 Beta 2, it can be found here
However, there has to be some other way other than uninstalling the current version and installing this one...

Ah cool - odd that they still offer that file! I'm only trying this in a virtual machine so it doesn't really matter about using that beta.
