    In case you missed it.

    I wanted to rename, reorder, and change my boot options. While Bcdedit.exe
    isn't impossibly hard to use, it's pretty archaic and time consuming.
    EasyBCD beta is sweet. It's got a few added extras too... like fixing the
    XP boot when your ready to delete Vista from a dual boot system.

    Check it out.

    Thanks again, Kerry, for pointing this out!

  2. Is VistBoot PRO and Easy BCD the same software?

    The reason I ask is that both work on my 64bit machine Vista on partition C:
    Neither will work on the 32bit machine Vista on partition F:

    Also they both give identical error messages on the 32bit computer.

    VistaBoot Pro click on change Settings = Unhandled exception Value cannot be
    Easy BCD click Change Entries = Unhandled exception Value cannot be null.

    VistaBoot PRO click Current Settings = Index and count must refer to a
    location within the string
    Easy BCD click View Settings = Index and count must refer to a location
    within the string.

    Most people are having success with both utilities.

    The "group" now with NeoSmart (EasyPC) seceded from Pro-Network (VistaPro) -
    As I have said previously - when something free becomes a hot item
    "intellectual ownership" becomes a problem.
