    yea just take the Reboot-To Menu.exe out of the install directory.. the Information panel wont function, the options in the options page wont function but the program will still run outside of the install directory :D The main purpose will still work.. :p

    EDIT:

    You will need .NET 3.5 on the machine you run it on though
    You will also need bcdedit.exe in the same folder are the Reboot-To Menu.exe

    it does vista+ os to install, Now bootlaoder entries I've tested are:
    Window Vista
    Windows 7
    Windows 8
    Windows Server 2008 R2
    Windows Server 2012
    Ubuntu (wubi)
    Ubuntu Server (wubi)
    It will allow boot into those ones from your windows OS and there might be more but I have not tried it

    Program requires that you are using the windows boot loader to function. I can look into other bootloaders but this should be good for now

    This has an update... and updates from here on should be picked up by the programs updater system

    it will notify you of updates but will not download then for you just yet. that should come in the next couple versions

    thanks guys for using this software :D

    and as always please tell me the problems or the good things that come from this program

    Any chance you can support restarting into Hackintosh? That would be killer.

    There is an update for this... the old one should pick it up in about 5 hours depending on if you have the updater enabled.

    :D enjoy and as always please tell me the bugs and the good that comes from it

    im done for the day :p
