Does somebody know what the difference between Whistler build 2462 and build 2462a is?
And does somebody know the buildtag of 2462a? 2462's tag is: 5.1.2462.0 (main.010315-1710).

Hmmm... The Media Player 8 was already included in Build 2416 :?

And this is a quote from Paul Thurrot's WinSuperSite:

Quote:
On March 19, testers received build 2462. This build featured a new "Forgotten Password Wizard" and various other tweaks, as well as an annoying "Search" pane behavior that was corrected in later build (see show below). Build 2462a--a minor update the delayed the release over that weekend--was eventually declared as Beta 2.

From that I read, 2462 downloaded from MS by the beta testers was build 2462,
whilst the build of 2462 shipped with the beta2 kit was 2462a.
And would mean the one downloaded by beta testers is an earlier build.
I wonder if it has a different tag.
