I just downloaded the Graphical Network Simulator version 0.8.2 Lion beta from the GNS3 site. When I clicked on the .app file of GNS3, I received a "GNS3 Error".


GNS3: GNS3 Error

When clicking on the Open Console button below, I got the log as shown below.

Hi lornes,

I read your error. There seems to be a problem with your Virtualbox,

Try these steps I hope they will help you.

1. Download VBE 0.8.2
2. Extracted the file.
3. Run ./gns3.pyw. It will open the VBE.
4. Go to Preferences > Virtual Box. See if Path to Vboxwrapper is correct. Click "Test".

Normally it will load vboxapi module. If it failed to load vboxapi module. Please check the VirtualBox installation.

Hope it solves your problem, if it doesn't then contact me, we will try something else. I saw that you have been facing this problem since the 23rd of march because that's when you posted the question.
