Hi mojo0716, welcome to NeoSmart Technologies.

We need some more details from you, please. When does this crash occur? If at startup, did EasyBCD ever work for you? What were you doing when it crashed?

Are you running EasyBCD in XP ?
If so did you install NET 2.0 framework first ?
It's a prerequisite.
Thanks for replying. I'm running Vista and EasyBCD always crashes now. I have tried re-installing it many times with no luck. It worked before though... I used it to dual boot Vista and OS X. Then I got a new hard drive and added it and took Leopard off the drive it was on and put it on the new drive. Now EasyBCD crashes :frowning:

Sorry, but I'm still missing the critical bit of info: when does it crash? Immediately upon running the program, I presume?

Check your programs in control panel to ensure the c++ 2005 redistributile is there. From my experience it also requires that. If you don't have it make sure you got the latest updates and than get from MS's site.

Just for the record: EasyBCD's only dependency is .NET 2.0 (backwards compatible with 3.0 and 3.5).

MSVC++ Runtimes are not required.
