That is the updated version!

Have you tried a different image?

Are you decompressing the image before attaching to GNS?

as stated in the documentation: "Note that currently images for 2600 routers must be uncompressed to work with Dynamips"

I am running 0.7.2 with 2600s with no issues, so you are more than likely running into a bug:
The developers will be able to help you out and possibly provided a fix:

Not all, the only one is the 2600 series.

Use winrar:

http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm

once installed, use file explorer to locate the 2600 image.bin file, open it with winrar and extract it. Then add the the extracted file to the 2600.

I add it to winrar and Extract it again and rename it from c2600-io3s56i-mz.120-5.XK1.bin To c2600-io3s56i-mz.120-5.XK1.image is this correct? because when i drug and drop the 2600 router there is no error

c2600-io3s56i-mz.120-5.XK1.image

the image name can be anything, it is already extracted. If you did not get an error when you dragged it over, then you should be good to start the router and console to it.
