A visual representation of the command line utility bcdedit that is designed to customize and edit boot loaders or repair broken boot records

editor's review






Visual BCD Editor represents a graphical user interface for the bcdedit command-line utility, allowing users to customize binary-coded decimal (BCD) objects.

The main application window is comfortable to work with, thanks to the Explorer-like structure, where you can navigate various locations in the BCD store to create, edit and delete objects and elements.

For example, you can create a new Windows NT, Vista or 7 loader, boot sector or missing Windows loaders, as well as rename loaders, hibernate resumers, settings, or device options locations.

In order to add a new element to the list, you are required to establish the object type (e.g. boot manager, OS loader, setup template), element and BCD type, and custom value.

In addition, you can backup and restore the BCD store, import or create a new one, repair the BCD and boot records, as well as access the Disk Management area.

We have noticed minimal system resources consumption during Visual BCD Editor's runtime. We haven't come across any issues in our tests, since the app did not hang or crash. However, given the nature of its sensitivity, only experienced users should tinker with Visual BCD Editor's settings.
