After confirming license, EasyBCD fails to start

#1
Hello,

I have been following the guide for creating a dual boot of Windows 7 and XP. Everything looks fine so far except that I cannot get EasyBCD to run on XP. I have installed the prerequisite updates for EasyBCD and have authenticated both versions of Windows. Easy BCD installs - the issue comes when I try to run it: a box pops up informing me that I have a non-commercial version. When I click "ok" the box disappears and nothing else happens. If I click "cancel" it launches a web browser.

Reinstalling it does not fix the problem. I have searched for a solution but have not been able to find anyone else having this problem.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post - I look forward to any possible solutions you may be able to offer.

You don't need to run EasyBCD on XP.
Run EasyBCD on W7 and add an entry to the BCD for XP, letting EasyBCD auto-configure.
When you boot W7 next, it will give you a boot selection menu where you can choose to start either W7 or XP.
