Windows 7 Problem Steps Recorder: Miracle tool
If you’ve ever offered technical support to other computer users, you might find yourself losing a slice of your sanity over their inability to describe the problem clearly. And most times it’s not the fault of the user, it’s just difficult to describe what you see with words. A feature new to Windows 7, called “Problem Steps Recorder” looks to be the missing tool for documenting where it all goes wrong.
First Windows 7 build 7032 screenshot leaks
Days after the leak of build 7022 (32-bit) to public torrent sites, WinFuture.de has posted a screenshot clearly showing a 64-bit Enterprise edition of build 7032. We already know of a build 7034, but this is significant because there have been no screenshots or any other tangible proof of any of the 703x builds. The screenshot shows the following build string: “‘6.1.7032.0.winmain.090129-1812,” meaning that the build was compiled on January 29, 2009 at 6:12PM. Since it is an interim build, it’s not surprising that the screenshot shows the build expiring on July 2, 2009.
Other than the new build number, the screenshot (full-size image) does not show too much. A date is shown in the bottom left in a European format, but all this shows is that the screenshot was taken today. There appears to be a new icon in the taskbar, and it looks like it is for the Control Panel. IE8 is still at RC1, which is not surprising. The user has Hibernate set as the default for the power button in the start menu, but this doesn’t necessarily mean Microsoft has changed it from Shut Down. This build does not include the fixes to UAC.
Look out for more leaked builds in the coming days as users become more and more impatient awaiting the public RC build rumored to be coming in April. Testers are expected to get a newer build before that.
WinFuture.de has now posted more screenshots of build 7032. Head over to their site to check them out in all their glory!
