Windows 7: build 7127 Vs 7100 - Thoughts so far

I hoped I could just install the newer versions right over my Build 7100 like an update, guess that's not the case after reading this thread

but yea, so far, after further review, 7127 has cured alot of my "blues". Especially when it comes to correctly and accurately reporting the connection, be it wired or wireless, as compared to the PUBLIC RELEASED windows 7 beta 2..."RC"
Hmm, never ran into that problem. Must of just been you. My build correctly reports my connection.

Sorry to jump on you, but you've been making it a habit lately of jumping on anyone that states how great 7100 has been. I'm another data point that thinks that 7100 is the fastest, most stable release yet. (not including 7127, as that is newer).

I honestly think MS should state a public apology for their carelessness of releasing this build to the general public, and then release an actual RC available to the public.... but oh my... that would definitely let the cat out of the bag wouldnt it.... roll the dice i say MS.... reconciling this issue may speak well on your future reputation.
FFS, what do IE updates have to do with Win 7? Of course the 7127 build didn't need the updates, they were included. Guess what, RTM won't need those either.

As far as the root security error goes, well sh*t happens and they probably won't make the same mistake on RTM.

I'm sorry MS killed your dog, but they've been real nice to mine.

As stated previously, in this thread I think, you CAN DEFINITELY DO an upgrade install over 7100, if you want, and users who have done it are not reporting any problems that I've seen. Here are the instructions from the MS Engineering Blog:

How to do “upgrade” install of later build over RC:
Here’s what you can do to bypass the check for pre-release upgrade IF YOU REALLY REALLY NEED TO:
  1. Download the ISO as you did previously and burn the ISO to a DVD.
  2. Copy the whole image to a storage location you wish to run the upgrade from (a bootable flash drive or a directory on any partition on the machine running the pre-release build).
  3. Browse to the sources directory.
  4. Open the file cversion.ini in a text editor like Notepad.
  5. Modify the MinClient build number to a value lower than the down-level build. For example, change 7100 to 7000 (pictured below).
  6. Save the file in place with the same name.
  7. Run setup like you would normally from this modified copy of the image and the version check will be bypassed.
These same steps will be required as we transition from the RC milestone to the RTM milestone. [In other words, if this is not already clear enough, you can do this same procedure to "upgrade" instead of clean install from a future RC to the RTM, when available.]

Again, we know many people (including tens of thousands at Microsoft) are relying on the pre-release builds of Windows 7 for mission critical and daily work, making this step less than convenient. We’re working hard to provide the highest quality release we can and so we’d like to make sure for this final phase of testing we’re supporting the most real world scenarios possible, which incremental build to build upgrades are not. At the same time everyone on the beta has been so great we wanted to make sure we at least offered an opportunity to make your own expert and informed choice about how to handle the upgrade.

Will this work?
Use Windows easy transfer, format C:, install 7127, use Windows easy transfer again with data from 7100.
Or is there too much difference between these 2 builds?

Sven, if you are talking about Migration Wizard (Migwiz) then yes, should work fine. When I switched from Win 7 32bit to 64bit I had to, of course, do a clean install. I used Migwiz and it worked perfectly.

1 change i've noticed in 7127 so far:

Control Panel - Network and Internet: More options under Internet Settings, this is the same as in Build 7077
build 7127 Vs 7100 - Thoughts so far-control-panel-network-internet-.png

Internet Explorer - Start InPrivate Browsing: (thanks to redsoxm16 for this) When right-clicking the IE taskbar icon, InPrivate has been replaced with Start InPrivate Browsing.

More to follow as i find them. 7127 so far is a lot more zippy than 7100. 1 more thing what's taking up the other 170+MB? (See pic below)

Hi there I don't have a 5D M2 but it works for a 1D MK2 and 1D Mk3 (also a new compact camera the Canon G10).

Install it in VISTA SP2 compatability mode - no probs so far.

Also download the latest version from the Canon site
