I recently got a small Windows 10 tablet for accessing my datacentre whilst out & about. Of course to do this I needed VPN access & the Cisco VPN Client wouldn’t install. I’d seen this before after Windows 10 upgrades so I used the same steps.
To get the software installed here’s the steps I took (along with the steps for after an upgrade to Win 10):
- Uninstall any a Cisco VPN Client software currently installed on the system.
- Uninstall all DNE update software currently installed on the system.
- Restart the computer.
- Install and run winfix.exe from Citrix.
- Restart the computer again.
- Download and install the SonicWALL VPN Client application from the links below.
This will install the correct DNE software which will work with the Cisco VPN
- Restart your computer yet again
- Download and install Cisco Systems VPN Client 5.0.07.0290 64 or 32 bit. Extract the msi install package and run it.
- Open regedit and browse to the registry key.
Select the Display Name key and change the following…
x86 – “@oem8.ifn,%CVirtA_Desc%;Cisco Systems VPN Adapter” to “Cisco Systems VPN Adapter”
x64 – “@oem8.ifn,%CVirtA_Desc%;Cisco Systems VPN Adapter for 64-bit Windows” to “Cisco Systems VPN Adapter for 64-bit Windows”
