Time Out can't be changed to 16 seconds, keeps changing back to 20 seconds

#1
Hello!

I am tri-booting 3 different systems.

When I try to change the timeout (from EasyBCD) from 20 seconds to 16 seconds, it doesn't allow me to.

Please fix this bug.

Thanks in advance,

Panarchy

Hi Panarchy, welcome to NST.

This isn't a bug we can reproduce (EasyBCD changes the Vista bootloader's timeout just fine on our machines), so we'll need some more info.

1. What version of EasyBCD?
2. What does EasyBCD show in the "Detailed Mode"

Detailed Mode?

I can't seem to find the option for Detailed Mode.

I have XP 64-bit & Vista 64-bit & Mac (I'm using BCD on Vista)

Please tell me how I can fix this.

Thanks in advance,

There's a bullet choice, just above the display window on the opening screen, "overview" (default) or "detailed"

Addendum:

Wait a second, just worked it out.

I was pressing the wrong Save Settings button.

Ooops.

PS: Thanks anyway
