If you are on XP you need to install .NET 2.0 first before EasyBCD will install.

microsoft net & unhandled exception

I went to microsoft and downloaded it but when I went to install it it said I had it already installed. I was able to run bcd a couple of times with no problem then all of a sudden when I got to run it I get the exception error, and if I choose to ignore it I get the interface with nothing working. Oh and I am running vista home premium and have xp on a separate hard drive.

So are you trying to install this in Vista or XP? Do you have the latest version?

I have version 1.7.2 I am installing it in vista home prememium. It was or is installed and ran just fine until the 3rd time I went to open it and that is when I starting experiencing the exception. I can run bcd and it seems all the choices on the interface work but when I go to view setting I get the unhandled exception and also when I first open the program. I uninstalled reinstalled with no difference.

Interesting. Have you had a problem with the boot loader at all?

So it is just EasyBCD. Send Computer Guru a PM asking for a build of the recent Beta of EasyBCD 2.0 with a agreement not to share the build. Maybe that will resolve your problems.

Looks like the configuration files used by the .NET Framework to keep track of applications have been corrupted.
