GNS3 pain!!!

[FONT=&quot]Ever since i updated GNS3 to 2.12 i have had nothing but problems. From it wanting to run a VM instead of opening the IOS images locally on my machine to it complaining that other processes of the application are open to not being able to open files. Very strange but when i first downloaded this file off networklessons.com for the CCNP TSHOOT topology:

[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]His GNS3 topology file opened perfectly with all the correct coloured shapes on the layout on the file, now it opens with none of that and with only certain links connected and no coloured shapes or writing on it. This is bizarre to try and explain to be honest but i cannot get it to open like it did the very first time i downloaded it, each time i download the file fresh again it looks the same unfinished and poorer way. Can anyone explain this, does anyone else have issues with the newer GNS3? I'm only using the same IOS images i've ever used and have worked in the past. The 3725-ad.bin and 7200[/FONT]

    I don't think those older GNS3 version projects are compatible with the newest, latest & greatest version. People were complaining about similar issues with CBT Nuggets' TSHOOT course which uses an older iteration of the GNS3 VM https://www.cbtnuggets.com/it-training/cisco-ccnp-tshoot-300-135-hands-on-labs-exam-prep

    GNS3 still has its quirks even though it's an overall awesome piece of software.

    Maybe open a thread in their community forum https://www.gns3.com/community to ask for help?

    Just download version 1.31 and 1.54, installed and opened previous files configured on those versions and now it not letting me open them either while saying i need 2.12 to open them even though they weren't made on that version.
    Nice!
