[RELEAK] More builds (WfW 3.11, Win 98, Win 2k)

Post by Overdoze »

These appear to be legit, though I wasn't able to quickly install the Windows 98 and Windows 2000 builds for screenshots, so please let me know if there's any issues (other than with 2170A obviously).

Windows for Workgroups 3.11 build 100 German

This is RC1 of WfW 3.11, the German release is dated 28th September 1993, some days later than the English release (of which we're missing disk 1).

Windows 98 build 1691 German

Windows 98 Second Edition build 2170A
Unfortunately, this one is missing two CABs because two warez release parts were corrupted.
Fixed and complete now.

Windows 2000 build 1773 Server

WIN98_44 and 77. There's an attempt going on right now to see if it can be installed by adding missing files from 2183.

A "Typical" install with the recommended components boots with the following files added from 2183:

It's not all fun and roses though:

I'll do a full install and see all the files that are missing in 2170 later.

Build 2170 was mentioned in an April 1999 warez CD (I think it was called SOS 4-99 IIRC), thankfully it is now released.

Just a bit of an update on 2170A: the two broken CABs have been recovered, so I'll be uploading a fixed ISO soon.

EDIT: Done, the link in the OP has been updated accordingly.
