Another Update on Interim Windows Vista Build 5728: Japanese Version Available

Another follow-up to my original post on Build 5728:  the Japanese download page for both 32- and 64-bit versions is live.

That means that this link is now active!

    some one can help me to reinstall my modem adsl usb to the windows vista 5600, i try many times without results.

    Are there MUI packs available somewhere to test this specific feature of Vista, or is it possible to "extract" a MUI pack out of the Japanese DVD?

    Hey Nei:  it’s not possible to extract the language pack from the interim build; you’ll need to either upgrade your existing build or run a clean install.

    Are the accompanying 5728 Windows SDK and Orcas VS2K5 extentions still on track to be released this Friday? I’m itching to write code against the latest build.

    You should really let customers choose the languages to install and not just install unnecessary language files the user would never require and which would take up a lot of space.

    And please change the volume icon on the taskbar, has it been changed for RTM? The white icon is soooo ugly.

    And postponing FireWire support = no need of Vista for multimedia pros.

    Everyone is saying Vista Classic looks bad but I find it the same as XP except for the sidebar. Why dont you add a nice border or better color for sidebar in Classic?

    Hi someone:  this is an interim build and so you should not expect to have the same flexibility with it that would with a market release.  It’s for this same reason that we cannot release 5728 in all languages that Windows supports.

    nwhite: Thank you for your reply. That is a pity, I wanted to try using Vista as a multi user computer where one user is Japanese and another one German.

    I have been tried downloading the Japanese version of x86 Vista 5728 image for several times. However whatever which methods I used (Akamai Download Manager or Download Accelerators), the downloaded file is still corrupt (Tried 2 times using DL Manager and download speed drops to 0kb/s after 30 secs, When direct download, server delivers me a file of only 160Mb).

    Is there a problem on server side or my ISP problem (I tried on several computers with same result)?

  12. nwhite says:

    Hi starkwong:  I’ve seen this problem before when the download servers are overloaded; I’d suggest trying your download again at another point in time, when hopefully the load will be lighter.

  13. starkwong says:

    Thanks for reply. Hope the download will not be removed too soon…
