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:
Right-click C:\Program Files\Boson Software. Then click Properties>Security, and modify your permissions so that you have full control over this folder.
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.
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.
