    hello everyone,

    greetings!

    i need some help. a friend of mine is preparing for his ccna. so he
    asked me if i can install gns3 in his windows machine and also
    configure it to a full blown lab for CCNA.

    issues, i am not able to make gns3 run in windows 7, so thinking
    of upgrading the OS to windows server 2008 r2 or windows server
    2012 r2.

    yes i did try the gns3 wiki, i tried everything, but nothing works.

    Anyone here tried this kind of things before?

    I know how to make this work in linux, but M$? i am not in the M$
    league anymore. lost all the experience and magic touch.

    any help is appreciated.

    TIA!

    thanks!
    -paul

    What problems are you having with GN3 in Windows 7? I had it in Win 7 and now Windows 8.1 update 1 with no issues.

    This is an .exe installer - should be straight forward.

    Agreed with urboy4mbx, I have GNS3 running on 8.1 no issues. Also preparing for my CCNA!
