GNS3 Console

I have installed GNS3 on my Vista laptop and XP box, but I cannot get console to run properly.

I have downloaded and read the pdf and watched the many videos available on youtube to no avail.

Please advise.

Thank you.

Well each virtualization platform will have its own virtual hardware driver, for eg. Microsoft called it virtual machine add-ons
Try installing for your platform

Which vmware product should I purchase/download?

ryder0707Commented:
vmware server 2 is free or you can try vmware workstation 7 for 30 days, if that works for you then perhaps you can decide to buy it later

First of all, do you plan to install it in a virtual machine? Perhaps i misunderstood your Q but you did assign to vmware zone so I'm assuming you'd be interested to try

I don't need to run it in a virtual machine. I am currently trying to run it off my desktop.
