    it has been reported that there is a major problem on 32bit operating systems so i will need to default everything to System32 and the files in that directory... update is coming soon. this will make it more portable.

    Hello,

    I use two OS: Windows XP and Openelec XBMC with Plop boot manager.

    From windows i can choose the os to reboot to by using "Bootice" which support a lot of bootmanager.
    It works fine but i can't do a reboot in one click..

    Then i find your software but it support only standart windows boot manager.

    Do you plan to support others boot managers like plop in a future version ?

    Thanks

    What do you want exactly ? I 'd just install plop manager on my hdd then i use bootice (portable software with GUI) to modify plop boot settings.

    Hi,

    Plop is installed on my HDD MBR, so i don't have a config file.

    But i did a MBR backup with bootice.

    Maybe can you use it ?

    ok so i understand a little bit better.. it loads plop from the mbr and then plop loads your xp boot manager ntrld? and then that loads up windows xp.

    i would have to learn more about the boot config files for xp lol
