3 Windows 95 (Pan European), Windows 95 OEM Service Release 2 (Pan European), Add-ons for Windows 95
4 August 96 Windows NT Workstation 4.0 See Setup.txt.
Windows NT?4.0 Workstation (U.S.), build 1381 with Service Pack 1.

When running WINNT.EXE to install, use the /b switch to avoid building floppies for setup.

5 August 96 Windows NT Workstation 4.0 (Checked/Debug) Build See \<platform>\Setup.txt
Windows NT?4.0 Workstation Checked Build (U.S.)

When running WINNT.EXE to install, use the /b switch to avoid building floppies for setup.

The free build of Windows NT is the retail version that end users buy. Free binaries are built with full optimization and contain a minimal set of debugging symbols, such as function entry points and global variables.

The checked build is used in debugging drivers and other system code. Checked binaries provide error checking, argument verification, and system debugging code not present in the free binaries.

The extra protection of the checked build of Windows NT carries some penalties. Because of the additional error checking code and debugging information, the checked binaries are larger and run slower than the free binaries. This can conceal synchronization or other timing-related problems, such as race conditions, that become apparent only in the free build.

If you run the checked build of Windows NT without having enabled kernel debugging, unexpected system shutdowns can occur. This is because the additional checks in the checked build increase the likelihood of encountering a breakpoint. A kernel-mode breakpoint with kernel debugging disabled is an unhandled kernel-mode exception, so the system calls the KeBugCheckEx function and shuts down.

However, if kernel debugging is enabled, a breakpoint freezes all threads in the target system except for the component that communicates with WinDbg. This lets WinDbg connect to a running target machine that has kernel debugging enabled, even after a breakpoint has been encountered.
