Do you see the EasyBCD window for a second?
 
#3
I have the exact same problem. I've recently been trying to dual boot windows 8 and ubuntu. I remember in the beginning easybcd did work, but after installing and then figuring out to uninstall the wubi version of ubuntu (I'm not exactly sure what I did), now easybcd doesn't load at all when I click on it. I've tried running bootrec /fixboot and bootrec /fixmbr from the windows installation disk, but to no avail. Can somebody help me on this please? Thanks.

Do you see the EasyBCD window? In the task manager, do you see bcdedit or bootgrabber?

No, I don't see either of those programs. I've pasted my bcdedit information below.

I've also tried running easybcd with admin privileges and that doesn't work either. Thank you for your help!

Addendum

I did some more research, and I found a similar post where you had to install the beta version of easybcd 2.2 build 180. I did that and it worked, but after a restart it stopped working again. Now both version do not work. How odd!

Check the Windows Event Log for anything pertaining to EasyBCD.

Control Panel > Performance > Advanced > Event Log
or just start typing "Event..." in the search box if you're using a decent OS like Vista/7
