Will NetSim run on Windows Vista and Windows 7?

NetSim Version 7 and 8 are supported on Windows Vista and Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit)

NetSim Version 6 is not supported under Windows Vista or Windows 7. However, if you are using NetSim Version 6 and wish to use NetSim Version 6 on Windows Vista or Windows 7, you can try the following steps:

  1. Right-click C:\Program Files\Boson Software. Then click Properties>Security, and modify your permissions so that you have full control over this folder.
  2. In this same folder, locate the following programs:  "Boson_NetSim.exe", "updates.exe", and "lab menu.exe". Right-click on them and then click Run as Administrator.
  3. Click Start. Look for the "Boson NetSim" icon. For example, "Boson NetSim for CCNA". Right-click this icon and click Run as Administrator.

*Please note that these steps may not work on some Vista and Windows 7 systems.
