Setting background image in Packet Tracer

Apr 27, 2011 11:26 AM

For some reason, I can no longer set the background image in Packet Tracer. Also, I used to see a list of images to choose from when I clicked the "Set Background" button.

 

Know I no longer see a list of images. Furthermore, when I browse to an image and select it, nothing happens. It is as if PT is ignoring the command to select the image.

 

Can anyone tell me what may be going on?

 

Thanks,

    you broke your PT

     

    they are in backgrounds in c:\program files\packettracer 5.3.1\ folder

    use Browse button to get there;

    there is  reset and apply buttons; I guess reset makes it go back to default ?

    If you are referring to setting the background images, save the file, and re-open in another computer, and the background don't show, then that is because the background files are not directly saved with the files. Only the paths are saved. That would mean your other computer must have the same images in the same paths.

     

    On the other hand, you CAN save the file and the images together in a PKZ file. Do a file -> save as pkz. Choose a filename, then you will be given a dialog to to add files to this pkz. You can add anything, including html files your pka references, background images, lab manual, anything really. Once saved, when you reload your file in another computer, all of those extra files will be available to be referenced by your PT file.
