What do the KRMS and KR1S strings mean in the name of the ISOs?
Just being curious,what do the KRMS and KR1S strings mean in the name of the installISOs of Windows Server 2008? 6001.17051.071121-2029_x86fre_Server_en-us-KR1SFRE_EN_DVD.iso 6001.18000.080118-1840_x86fre_Server_en-us-KRMSFRE_EN_DVD.iso As far as I know 6001 is the build number (which is fixed 6001 for WS2008), next is the revision number, next the build date and time, x86fre means its for the x86 architecture and it is a free build (without the debug symbols), correct? But I'm unable to guess the meaning of KR1s and KRMS And what was the reasonfor changing the versioning scheme from major.minor.build to build.revision? What was the problem with the old scheme, e.g. in XP 5.2.2600, where it was easy to see the service pack level and the number of builds since the beginning of NT?What is better inthe new scheme 6.0.6001.18000? Thanks for the answer, Zoltan

Hello, Based on my research, KR1 means RC1 (Release Candidate 1) and KRM means RTM. I hope this helps. Regards, Neo Zhu Microsoft Online Community Support
