Checked builds of Betas.

Post by Unknown »

I've just noticed that there's a Build Screenshots link on the forum, &
wondered how there got to be so many checked builds of the windows 95
betas, amongst others.
I've yet to see one in circulation myself.
Are these part of a private collection or does someone here have a server
hosting them that I've not yet discovered..
Thanks.

These builds are mostly in KenOath's possession, and he has many unleaked ones and among them, also checked builds. They used to come in MSDN and maybe also TechNet kits, but I only have very few of them. Anyway, the checked builds are not intended for daily usage, so there's actually little point in using them unless you're a driver developer or something along these lines.

Yeah I know their for developing & debugging drivers,
I was just curious as to how there came to be so many that I've not yet seen,
especially since there are so many early windows screenshot sights around.
In taking a good look through the screens he made, it appears as though the
builds were installing as debug builds, yet of the windows 95 & 8 DDKs I've
encountered over the years, the 95 & 98 debug builds were installed as a std
installation 1st, then converted to debug using the DDK.
NVM, I'll just ask the fellow via PM.
