(Version 0.9.3.1 – Copyright © 2012 BoYans – www.boyans.net)
Visual BCD Editor is an advanced GUI version of Windows bcdedit utility. It is the first GUI tool to implement full editing of Windows 7/Vista Boot Configuration Data (BCD) store. The tool gives a structured view of Windows BCD store with its explorer like interface and is easy to use for novice and advanced users. Visual BCD Editor implements automatic creation of loaders for dual or multi boot systems with Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP and Windows 7 VHD installations (since version 0.9.2) and so is the ultimate Windows 7 dual boot editor. Boot sector loaders (for booting Linux, Ubuntu, Fedora, Mac OS X) are created with one click and need additional extraction of MBR or PBR with dd utility for Windows (in development - automatic creation of GRUB based loaders).
New in version 0.9.3 - handling of Custom Bootstrap Actions (boot-time keyboard shortcuts to loaders).
The user can create and change the value of more than 140 properties of BCD objects by simple edits. Other similar utilities give access to not more than 20 properties.
All used constants, names, objects and elements are as defined by Microsoft.
Runtime requirements: .NET Framework 2.0 and Windows 7/Vista.
The tool has not been fully tested on GPT/UEFI but editing should be possible on all elements. Repair and export/import of BCD should work as well.
