Error Msg trying to change Bootloader Timeout value (bug?)

Hello, hope someone can help.

After I included Ubuntu 7.10 in my Vista Bootloader everything worked fine. I can boot from both OS's without problem. However when I try to set timeout value for Vista Bootloader to something different from 30. I get error message (see below) and then prompts me to continue or quit program, if I click continue I get back to the application but timeout value remains in 30, if I click quit application is closed.

OS Specs:
Vista Enterprise 32-bits SP1
Ubuntu 7.10
which other specifications could be helpful?

You can find Detailed (debug mode) at the bottom.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Should I put this thread on Bug Central?

See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
For example:
< jitDebugging="true" />
When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.

Hi aarondiaz, welcome to NeoSmart Technologies.

If you'll send me a private message with your email address and agreement not to redistribute any private builds, I'll send you the latest internal build of EasyBCD 2.0 which should resolve your problem.

Thanks for your quick reply Computer Guru (Mahmoud).
Since I'm new on this forum, I'm not sure what you mean with "private message", should I contact you via MSN? or forum has a private message function? and if it has, where can I find it?

Thanks again,
Thanks for your help Kairozamorro, some how those options were not displayed from my IE7 browser, now that I booted from Ubuntu and using Firefox Private Message is shown. Not sure, maybe I was doing something wrong, anyway, Thanks again for your help.

Weird, I'll have to look into that weird IE7 behavior....

Anyway, I've received your message and will send you the build shortly.
Kairozamorro, did you mean private messages? I double checked from IE7 Vista SP1 and I was able to get the PM working, sorry, maybe I just not paid much attention. Thanks

About EasyBCD error message originaly posted at the top, Thanks a lot ComputerGuru, It worked fine with the info you sent.

Thanks again.
