Windows 7: Build 7077 - Should I download it?

09 Apr 2009   #11

Windows 7 Build 7229 x64

It's slightly faster and the WMP bug was fixed. There's also a large increase in driver support.

I think Orbital Shark said it best...if you don't have any issues with 7068 and you are limited on bandwidth and download speed, there's not a big reason to upgrade.

I would also suggest not bothering with 7077 if your on a capped allowance. Wait for RC1 in May, its not that long ahead.

I have to say that I personally have not noticed much difference, but I suppose it depends what you use your OS for! I don't use Windows Media Player as I use Foobar....

If you have a limited download then like swarfega has said, probably not worth bothering with. Luckily I'm not restricted in any way, and as I'm a total Windows 7 addict and 'GEEK' I always get the latest, even though it's probably pointless for me!

Microsoft, you're teasing me too much now with all these leaked builds. Get it released!!!

Windows 7 RC1 Build 71000

Microsoft say you cannot upgrade to RC1 Build 7100 from the Beta 7000, and from what I've read elsewhere, it cannot be upgraded from any other of the leaked betas except for Build 7077.

So if you want to do an upgrade to 7100 instead of a clean install, and you have Build 7068, then you'll need to download Build 7077 to upgrade via.

I already had Build 7077 and upgraded to 7100 successfully, so I didn't try upgrading from 7068 or 7000 to verify that you couldn't, but Microsoft officially say you can't upgrade from 7000 and of course they don't mention build 7068 or 7077 as no one is meant to have those releases.

Build 7077 x64
Did anyone have major problems with build 7077? For me it was so bad, that I had to put vista back on the machine. I never had any major problems with build 7000. 7077 had nice features, but none of my movies would play or for that matter even be recognized as movie files. Most of my software...

So is build 7077 RC and is it good?
I'm going to install 7, but I was kinda waiting for the RC. I don't know if build 7077 is RC or not, so if you guys know, that would be good... Also, is it good? I mean, does it have good performance and stability? And is it buggy?
