trying to get latest release candidate

I'm currently running build 7100 on both an older 32bit p4 2.6ghz system and also on my 64bit pentiumd 3ghz system. I am trying to update this 7100 rc build to the latest and every time i attempt to download what I presume might be a newer build the file name and title show I'm still getting build 7100.. Is there something I'm missing???
Thanks much for any help..

You keep looking for RC's. There is only one RC, and that's build 7100 so looking for "the latest release candidate" means you're lookign for 7100. Everything else is post-RC.

trying to get latest build then i suppose

Ok, then I'm confused as usual.. I keep seeing these various builds mentioned and I'm trying to get the latest build then I presume. I figured they were newer versions of the release candidate that I already have. Made sense to me I spose..
Thanks

These builds are leaked builds and aren't official. The way to get these would be to look on torrent sites or PM a member for a download link

Read online about Windows 7 RC. I assume that means release candidate. I wonder if I should try it when it comes out in May. I hate using skins for programs or programs that imitate an upcoming OS. It's not the same and you don't appreciate it as much. Whether it is transformation pack or...
