How to Update GNS3 VM on Windows 10

After installing the GNS3 VM with VMware on your Windows 10 system, you will need to upgrade when the new version of the program is released.

How to Upgrade GNS3 VM

To configure the GNS3 VM to the latest version:

Step 1: If you have not previously installed the GNS3 VM, please refer to the video below.


Step 2: When a new program version is released, you do not need to install it from scratch. Because you will save your network projects and Cisco Router or Switch images you added to the server. So it makes sense to update your GNS3 server to a new version.

Step 3: Now run your GNS3 server and check the version in the top left corner.

Step 4: Open the advanced configuration of the server by pressing Enter on OK.

Step 5: From the listed options, press Enter again on Upgrade.

Step 6: The required packages will be downloaded and installed online.

Step 7: After the GNS3 VM is updated, the server will reboot, and you will now have the new version installed.

Step 8: Watch the entire video to install the GNS3 VM step by step!
