easyBCD fails to initialize


New Member
i've a dell xps which came with vista, the cad tool i use only runs under xp pro sp2 so this is why i've ended up here.The problem which is a bit weird is i managed to install easyBCD and dual booted ok, then in my infinate wizdom screwed up setting the display driver software and ended up with blank screens, so i deleted the xp partition and put it all back again, the system runs ok (the sound card has disapeared) but only boots xp. When i run easyBCD i get application failed to initialize error code xxxxxxxx. It's not the end of the world but i know it worked before and why not now?
any ideas??

Hi Carl, welcome to NST.

You need to install the .NET 2.0 Framework first before EasyBCD will run.
