Hi, thanks for your bug report.

When you attempt to turn on EasyBCD, do any of these applications turn on and remain on (in the task manager), hanging in the background?
* bootgrabber.exe
* bcdedit.exe

What does that mean? What happens? Were you able to run previous builds?

[EBCD-499] Nothing happens when you try to run EasyBCD 2.2

I see several people have reported this problem where you click on the shortcut and nothing actually opens. But they never answer you (computer-guru), after you ask them a question.

No there are no processes that stay open in the background related to easybcd. I've tried builds 170, 172, and 173.

This is Win8 CP 32bit. Let me know what else you need to know.

Does this happen with build 169? 170 was the one where I introduced the .NET 4.0 hack.

And thank you for providing info!

Addendum:

And can you please provide either the BCD backup (created with EasyBCD or bcdedit /export) or the output of bcdedit.exe /enum all

You are welcome. If you see any discrepancy between this info and what I included in the first post its because I took out a tertiary HDD and switched the system partition between that one and the primary HDD because the boot drive and the system drive differed. So now the primary is now both system and boot. (Just FYI in case something doesn't add up.)

I have not tried build 169 yet. I'll edit the post when I do. Having done the above the situation hasn't changed.

EDIT: Build 169 works just fine..

Here ya go...

matt, is there any chance you can repost that as an attachment txt? The spacing is all wrong due to the vBulletin software. I feed it directly into EasyBCD to mimic the behavior on your system, and it's not working because of the differences.
(you could try using [ c o d e ] blocks around it, too)

Or just zip the BCD backup and attach.

Thanks!

I'm unfortunately unable to reproduce that behavior.

If you see any discrepancy between this info and what I included in the first post its because I took out a tertiary HDD and switched the system partition between that one and the primary HDD because the boot drive and the system drive differed. So now the primary is now both system and boot. (Just FYI in case something doesn't add up.)
This wasn't responsible for it starting to work, right? (it's still broken with build 170-3 after this change?)

Thanks for the footnote. It's possible that's the reason as this is an issue related to which version of the framework EasyBCD uses.

I'll try to reproduce.

Merged all threads on this issue

I have attempted to reproduce this by installing Visual Studio 11 Beta in Windows 8 CP, but cannot. EasyBCD starts and runs fine for me (build 177).

Addendum

OK, found it. Had to install VS11 then enable .NET 3.5. It now crashes immediately on run (which is good).

I believe this issues has been fixed in EasyBCD 2.2 beta build 180. There were a number of issues some with Windows 8 and some with EasyBCD that were working together to cause this crash. Filed bugs on MSDN that were fixed in RC and updated EasyBCD to better handle mixed CLR2 and CLR4 .NET environments and all possible permutations thereof.
