Can't add modules on Cisco Packet Tracer 8.0 on Macbook

I am using Packet Tracer 8.0.0.0212, and I cannot add modules to my device.

I cannot drag or do anything.

I understand. I still am not sure why it worked, but it did. Just to be clear … I also am working on a MB pro and PT version 8 What I did was create a folder on my desktop, then groom PT hit file open which for me brings up the saves folder. From the saves folder I dragged and dropped the previously saved PT file that had devices I couldn’t physically configure. Then I closed PT and reopened the PT file by clicking it from the folder.

Hi jsulliva,

 

Just want to update my "long-term" test result in the last couple of days. It seems to have resolved the module-adding issue completely when I tried to relaunch the Packet Tracer app after I came back from work and turned on my Mac after a complete shut down.

 

This resolution seems to be consitently preventing the issue recurring effectively. However, there is a funny situation, which is when I try to use the module-adding function by drag and drop in the first launch of the packet tracer app after complete and clean Mac startup from the complete shut down over night, it tends to fail working. So, I quit and relaunch the packet tracer (without a complete shut down or restart), the module-adding function works magically without typing the umask 011 command int Terminal every time.

 

This solution can be proved effective. Massive thanks for the contribution!

 

Regards.
