EasyBCD not opening

#1
I'm trying to dual-boot Debian 8.3 with Windows 10, and after going through the install process (without installing a bootloader, as it didn't recognize Windows 10 and would've rendered it unusable if I did,) I tried to go into EasyBCD to make an entry in the Windows Bootloader for Debian. When I try to start EasyBCD, nothing happens. When I try to start it, 2 errors pop up in the event viewer.
