Development Release #2 is a pre-release build of the Microsoft Windows 1.0 operating system, compiled sometime in June 1984. Only the Tandy 2000 variant of this build is currently known to exist, however, a PC-compatible variant of this build would've been shipped as well.
This build, respectively its Tandy 2000 variant, was demonstrated at the Boston Computer Society meeting in June 1984. Just like the previous, this build was launched from a file called
DEMO.BAT, and was ran from a single 5,25" floppy disk.
The Clipboard application was not included in the demonstrated build. It is currently unknown why it was removed.
