iReboot 1.1.1 won't start in Win7


I am using EasyBCD to manage XP & Win7 on a dual-boot PC. It works fine. I'm trying to use iReboot to switch between them. It works in XP but when I start it in Win7 it tells me "iReboot.exe Application Error - The application was unable to start correctly (0x000007b). Click OK to close the application."

I suspected ZoneAlarm but it doesn't matter if ZA is running or not.

Any clues?

You may need to install .net 2.0. The default in Win 7 is .net 3.5 which should be backwards compatible but you may need to turn it on.

You want Programs and Features in Control Panel. Click start, and type: 'turn windows features on and off' You will see a checkbox for .Net frameworks.
It's definitely Zone Alarm.

It's not about it being running, you have to turn off the Zone Alarm Force service.
It was ZoneAlarm. I stopped the "ZoneAlarm ForceField IswSvc" service and iReboot will work. I noticed that sometimes iReboot will load correctly on startup but most times it won't. I wonder if that has to do with the sequence in which the services start up. I'm trying to find a way to control the sequence if possible.
