MSBLOG Exclusive: Vista 5367 (Internal Build)

April 14th, 2006 by Zack Whittaker

Well, another exclusive once again. People have been sceptical about the screenshots of Vista 5355 (here by the way) which was a special Windows Vista Media Center build, well we’ve just got word about build 5367.

This build is only interna and will not be in any way shape or form be distributed to technical testers nor MSDN Subcribers and TechNet Plus Subscribers. It’s our guess that they’ve already reached this build and gone further on.

Note: We at MSBLOG cannot confirm whether this is a genuine build or not, but I’ve been looking over the screenshots and I cannot see any sign of forgery… however please be warned – this may just simply be a hoax but to be honest it’s unlikely.

Again please note (especially for the n00bs out there): It is looking as though this build is a hoax… we just don’t quite know. But please don’t have a go at us! We’re just keeping up with the news – and this post is still correct in saying that we cannot confirm yet whether it’s a forgery or not… but it’s hard for us to formely confirm it seeing as build numbers are still a bit of a secret within Microsoft. So please don’t leave abusive messages because it’s not necessary… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Is it just me or is the compile date in the about box in that screenshot have to many numbers in it? Its confusing. Common sense says that its just a typo and it means april 2nd.. But I dont know..Could that be a sign up forgery?

  3. Matt Says:

    Well now I look at it and it cant be april 2nd. So i dont know..

  4. Patrick Elliott [MVP] Says:

    It has more digits in the build tag than i’ve ever seen before ..
    It appears to say “Build 5367.winmain_idx04.0623024-1620”
    That doesn’t make sense to me, Year 06, Month 23?? Day 024??
    Of course neither did the “onghornLay rofessionalPay” which supposidly was real in early alpha builds…

  5. Stanimir Stoyanov Says:

    In addition to the incorrect/strange build tag, take a look at the Command Prompt window: it says “C:\Windows” while it should be either “C:\>Windows” or “C:\Windows>”. Also, if it was not supposed to be distributed publically there would be no reason to ‘isolate’ it in the Idx branch.

    LOL – thanks Paul – logged your IP ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. Sidebar Geek Says:

    How are people skeptical of Build 5355? They were posted by a Microsoft employee! A program manager for that matter. What’s there to be skeptical about? I’m more inclined to believe a Microsoft employee’s screenshots than the shots you’re showing here.

    You were kidding right?

  9. Zack Whittaker Says:

    I see what you mean Brandon – I was a little sceptical about it, but Patrick certainly has a good point about the build tags. ๐Ÿ˜› I guess we can take this as a hoax after all ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Sidebar Geek Says:

    Zack, please know I meant no disrespect by my comment.

    I’m sorry this turned out to be a hoax. I imagine you’ll probably get plenty more oppertunities to offer the community exclusive info in the future and I look forward to it ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Zack Whittaker Says:

    Oh of course not ๐Ÿ™‚ Totally understand what you mean Brandon – it wasn’t you who I was referring to whatsoever. You’ve got a great blog and I know the feeling is mutual – but thanks for commenting none the less! ๐Ÿ™‚ All the best!! ๐Ÿ˜€
