Is there a way to find out, which build Windows 3.00 is?

I'm afraid not. The executables in the Windows versions before 3.1 didn't have the Version Information resources, so it would be impossible to find out their on,and Build, numbers. ;)

:S Damn!

EDIT:

Found the string "WinSetup Version 3.00.137" in Windows 3.1's setup.exe.

Versioning appeared around 1991. Windows 3.0 MME has build numbers, as does 3.1 and 3.11. However this is not very important at this stage. The bulk of Wfw 3.11 has the same build as Win 3.10, except for some bug fixes.

Both of the released janus versions have build numbers, but it was never a big issue at the time. Some of the DOS versions have build numbers too.

OS/2 has always had build numbers, and later releases of PC-DOS 7.10 also have these.
