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).

Download it from here: http://citadel.rol.im/win95osr2_1043.rar .
This is dated June 1st, 1996 and it seems it was released because Microsoft messed up something in build 1034 (Beta 2). As is usual with OSR 2 scene leaks from the period, this is missing WINSETUP.BIN. Enjoy!

To add onto Battler's post, here's a few things:

1. README.TXT is also missing, but you can just skip it during setup.

I'll let 2. and 3. speak for themselves:

2. Image

3. Image

Seems Microsoft was pretty unsure about how to present these parts of the UI during the betas, but they settled the matter by 1089.

Also, it seems that this build extended the timebomb for Windows 95 OSR2 builds, as a .NFO mentions the fact that with this build, users of OSR2 wouldn't have to worry about July 1996 anymore. July 1, 1996 is the date of expiry for 1009 and 1034's timebombs.

The last one. Thank god.

1095 may exist (heard about it) and 1115/1163 are two unleaked OSR 2.1 builds known to exist. There was also an OSR 2.5 beta featured on warez discs, but not on the internet.

Offtopic Comment
Where the hell are these builds coming from? I never saw this much build in such a short period of time. Is it possible that these builds are being handed by extraterrestrials?
