Changes in Windows 7 Build 6.1.7057 Pre-RC1

It is not the first time that we have seen a Windows 7 build being leaked out from Microsoft labs to the world of Internet. It has been confirmed that Windows 7 Build 7057 with build string of 7057.0.x86fre.winmain. 090305 2000 has been leaked. The build string of Windows 7 Build 7057 reveals it as a Pre-RC build which was compiled on 5th March 2009 and it is therefore only about a week old.

Changes in Windows 7 Build 7057 are illustrated by the screenshots below:

  • The most striking change is the new logon and shutdown screens which are now equipped with flower ornaments and look gorgeous.


  • EULA(End-User License Agreement) states this build as “Windows 7 Release Candidate 1”.


  • New background wallpapers have been added.


  • New variety of avatar images have been added to choose from for user accounts.


  • Unlike all the previous build of Windows 7 which are set to expire in July 2009, the expiration limit of Windows 7 Build 7057 has been extended to run till 1st March 2010.


I personally cant wait for Microsoft to roll-out Release Candidate 1 build of Windows 7 which is expected to be out at the end of this month (March 2009).
