"EasyBCD Has stopped working"

#1
I have loaded the EasyBCD software to allow me to boot either XP or Vista onto a new Laptop (vista loaded first) and it installed OK but gives me the error message in a windows popup window "EastBCD has stopped working" when its run. I have tried running as administrator and running it in different places to see if its a permissions problem. Its a new laptop so could be a general issue with Vista.
Help.....

Hiya beginner,

Welcome to NeoSmart Technologies.
That's an interesting but vague general exception error. It says that Windows Vista isn't able to get EasyBCD to even start. Once it *does* start, you would see more descriptive errors that start with "JIT Debugger"

I don't know what's up exactly, have you tried the "Search for Solutions" feature in Control Panel | "Problem Reports and Solutions"?

Have you seen this error with any other .NET 2.0 program? (Like Paint.NET maybe?)
