Changing A Build Tag

Post by Dr Eggman »

Hello,
I want to know, is there anyway to change the build tag? i want mine to say,
"Windows Vista 'Pre'-Beta 2", in build 5219 instead of just "Beta 2"

You can change it by editing win32k.sys, but don't use Resource Hacker, because it corrupts the file, any other resource editor should be fine though.

it'll be in the mui, not the file itself.

Sorry, it's because i was remembering from XP, which didn't have MUIs unless you had FLP.

Wndows XP can also handle MUIs You can install a MUI on any English XP.

Actually, MUIs have been around since Windows 2000 AFAIK.
