Windows 7: Weird Windows 7/Windows 8 Dual Boot problem

19 Jan 2013   #21

Win 8 RP, Win 7, XP

I will make things even easier.
This is the copyright string in "easyldr" extracted using strings.exe(sysinternals):

Microsoft Corporation
Boot Loader
5.2.3790.2825 (srv03_sp2_rc.061103-1303)
Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
Operating System
I think that Neosmart is breaking copyright law pretending that easyldr is a Neosmart product.

Brink, gregrocker I need your answer - is Neosmart violating copyright law ?

I don't think Microsoft has given a license to Neosmart to rename ntldr to easyldr and sell it as its own product.
Why would Microsoft leave its copyright notice in a product given to another company ?

I think that this should be a debate between Microsoft and EasyBCD/NeoSmart if it is instead. Until it is declared to be so by Microsoft, there will be no issue recommending to use this program here at Seven Forums.

For now, let's stop hijacking this thread, and get back to helping Hansen with his issue shall we. :)


Please update us on your status. Sorry for this hijack.
