Can bootrec.exe be run outside Windows RE?

When you try to run bootrec.exe under an installed version of Win 7 or 8 you get the following error:

The resource loader cache doesn't have loaded MUI entry.

I know, I know, it normally runs in the RE environment, but is there a way to run it in an installed environment?

First question would be why? You have already booted surely?

But i think the simple answer to your question is no, it requires the RE running to run.
