    Release notes for the preliminary release of Microsoft Windows Code Name "Longhorn" that was distributed at the Windows Hardware Engineering Conference in May 2004

    This article discusses a preview release of a Microsoft product. The information in this article is provided as-is and is subject to change without notice.

    No formal product support is available from Microsoft for this pre-release product. For information about how to obtain support for this preview release, see the documentation that is included with the preview product files.

    INTRODUCTION
    These release notes contain important information that was not available when the product documentation was written for Microsoft Windows Code Name "Longhorn." Longhorn was distributed at the Windows Hardware Engineering Conference (WinHEC) in May 2004.

    Unless stated otherwise, all the information that this article includes applies to Microsoft Windows Code Name "Longhorn," Microsoft Windows Code Name "Longhorn" for Itanium-based systems, and Microsoft Windows Code Name "Longhorn" for 64-bit extended systems. These release notes supplement the documentation on the Microsoft Windows Code Name "Longhorn" CD-ROM.
    How to use these notes
    Microsoft recommends that you verify if any of these notes apply to your specific setup.
    MORE INFORMATION
    ? For this preliminary release, you cannot install printers on Microsoft Windows Code Name "Longhorn" for 64-bit extended systems. As a result, you cannot create a printer queue. Printer driver installation works correctly for this preliminary release of Microsoft Windows Code Name "Longhorn" and Microsoft Windows Code Name "Longhorn" for Itanium-based systems.
    ? For this preliminary release, the version of Microsoft Code Name "Indigo" (Message Bus) includes a temporary regression error that affects interoperability between "Indigo" and ASP.NET Web services. The "Indigo" transport framework in this preliminary release does not support wire level ASP.NET Web services interoperability. As a result, Visual Studio developers cannot use Add Web Reference to consume an "Indigo" service. Also, "Indigo" developers cannot use Wsdlgen.exe to consume an ASP.NET Web service. There are no workarounds.

    If you need support for interoperability between "Indigo" and ASP.NET Web services for prototyping efforts, you must use the Microsoft Windows Code Name "Longhorn" Preview Release, which was distributed at the Professional Developers Conference 2003.
    ? Your PS/2-style mouse does not work during the first phase of Setup from the Microsoft Windows Code Name "Longhorn" CD-ROM. To work around this problem, use your keyboard to continue Setup. After Setup is complete, your PS/2-style mouse should work correctly.

    Note This problem does not occur if you have a USB mouse connected when you start Setup. This problem also does not occur when you upgrade to Microsoft Windows Code Name "Longhorn" (by using Winnt32.exe) or when you install Microsoft Windows Code Name "Longhorn" for Itanium-based systems or Microsoft Windows Code Name "Longhorn" for 64-bit extended systems.
    ? You cannot create a new folder in Windows Explorer. When you right-click in a folder and point to New, the Folder command is missing from the menu that appears. To work around this problem, use the MKDIR command at a command prompt to create new folders.

    So Longhorn is going to be for 64-bit processors only? I gotta get me one of those A64s.
