Windows 7106 is not the latest build . 7077 was the latest build now replaced by windows 7100 .How can I upgrade my Windows 7, to the latest build (7106 ?)
Windows Xp mode as a free windows 7 Ultimate download A big plus for windows 7And why exactly would you want to upgrade to a higher build? are there big changes? like say from 7000 to the latest.
And can I keep all my programs and stuff?
There is a link in my above post hope that helps you out on the queryhuh? xp mode? I don't get it.
whats xp mode? Can you give me a link or some screenshots?
and isnt build 7100 a beta to?
btw, I have the original beta from windows 7 build 7000 installed.
No its not a waste of time the RC is very good and 7000 is now a fairly old beta . It is of course up to you but the new 7100 RC is fast and stable at least so far as I can tell . Being the release candidate it is more or less the finished article .Ahaa, yes it helped. Thank you. I am now downloading it ^^
But still what are the main changes between 7000 and 7100 or am I just wasting time while upgrading?
A clean install is always best . If you really want to do an upgrade it should work but make sure you check the forum, for any issues you may encounter . I always clean install so I cannot be 100% certain you would not run into problems along the way .Link Removed due to 404 Errorallright thank you ^^
and I can just install this build as you wrote in one of your previous posts without deleting/formating anything from the 7000 build I got installed, right?
Hmmm, I think it should work... why else do they go trough the trouble of changing the MinClient build number? =]
I'm gonna try it!
and I'll post if it worked/or not ^^
Great stuff well done and yes I think you are right about when it will be available .I did an upgrade just to see it works and it did. I went from 7077 with no problems and no messing about with the Minclient number thing. I am looking forward to seeing what this XP mode is like. There is no sign of it with 7100 yet so I assume it will be downloadable in May.
The compatibility check failed one more time lol, I use build 7057 and want to upgrade to 7100Hi.
Yesterday I read (either in this forum or somewhere else, maybe in a torrents site) how to make the installation of Windows 7 build 7100 RC allow the upgrade from a beta.
Now I need it and I can't find it...
Found it (sorry)
To upgrade from beta you need to:
- Extract the .iso contents 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 old build).
- Browse to the sources directory.
- Open the file cversion.ini in a text editor like Notepad.
- Modify the MinClient build number to a value lower than the down-level build. For example, change 7100 to 7000.
- Save the file in place with the same name.
- Run setup.exe like you would normally and the version check will be bypassed.

uhm I think you already said the answer yourself.I was informed that I can upgrade my build 7000 to the 7106 by editing the CVERSION.INI file in the SOURCES folder.
Yet the file shows: MiniClient value : 7000.0.
So I cannot changing this value to a lower one for upgrading. Can I still use it as it is and upgrade my 7000 to 7106 without having to re-install all the programs again ?
