VistaBootPRO 1.1

VistaBootPRO is now deprecated. NeoSmart Technologies’ EasyBCD utility has replaced it.

Many of our members at NeoSmart Technologies and friends on and offline have been bombarding us with inquiries regarding the development line of VistaBootPRO, the hot-hit release that saved a lot of people a lot of headaches.

When I wrote this program I had no idea it would have such an impact, but either way, I’m glad I did, and no, it’s not going to stop there.

VistaBootPRO is not just a bootloader modification tool: it’s a utility that opens the gates to many hidden and inaccessible features in Vista, and it’s here to stay. As many of you know, VistaBootPRO was a fairly well kept secret, and the veil of secrecy never lifted, it just moved around a bit and became thinner in parts. In our opinion, a good program is one where new features come by the dozen, and the end-user is always (pleasantly) surprised, so we’re not going to spoil the secret by spilling the means… but we’re willing to whet your appetite and quench your curiosity for now, so long as you’ll be back later for more :)

VistaBootPRO 1.0 Beta Released!

VistaBootPRO is now deprecated. NeoSmart Technologies’ EasyBCD utility has replaced it.

VistaBootPRO is the first tweak-ware to be released for Windows Vista, but it's more than just that. When Microsoft first announced that they would not be providing anything easier than bcdedit.exe (a CLI-only tool with nested options and embedded tags) for the modification of the boot loader, we knew something had to be done, and now we're proud to announce that together with PROnetworks and months of hard work, planning, desiging, and researching have come to test with the initial release of VistaBootPRO.

It can literally do anything with your Vista boot menu, and will in time completely replace bcdedit, but for now in this release there is still plenty to do, and much to learn. With VistaBootPRO 1.0, you can change everything and anything about how your boot loader looks, and what it loads, and where it goes with it. You can use VistaBootPRO to backup, export, modify, and restore the BCD registry at any time, and from any OS; so that even if your Vista won't boot, VistaBootPRO will!

VistaBootPRO: Update

VistaBootPRO is now deprecated. NeoSmart Technologies’ EasyBCD utility has replaced it.

I'm really sorry to have to make this post, but yes, the assumtions that many of you emailed me are correct: VistaBootPRO has been delayed.

Don't get me wrong, the program is done, the files, are ready, the servers are up, the forums are open, and the experts are at hand, but nevertheless, VistaBootPRO has been delayed. It seems that there are some unforseen complications in our partnership with PROnetworks for the release of VistaBootPRO, and management issues on their end have caused this delay. NeoSmart Technologies has finished our part of the agreement, we are now just waiting on PROnetworks to let us know when they are ready. At this point, your guess is as good as ours, but for everyone's sake, we hope it's soon.

VistaBootPRO: Friday, May 12th!

VistaBootPRO is now deprecated. Use EasyBCD instead.

It’s official! VistaBootPRO is coming this Friday, May 12th; and you’d better get ready for it! Yes, VistaBootPRO is the name of the mystery app that many of you have been asking about; and no, I still can’t tell you what it does besides that (if you can’t guess…).

Both NeoSmart Technologies and PROnetworks are very happy to be able to bring you this release, and we’re all working really hard to make sure it’s a success. For now, here is a userbar with half a logo to whet your appetite until later. And I promise, if everything goes well, you’ll know more before Friday :D
