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):

  1. Uninstall any a Cisco VPN Client software currently installed on the system.
  2. Uninstall all DNE update software currently installed on the system.
  3. Restart the computer.
  4. Install and run winfix.exe from Citrix.
  5. Restart the computer again.
  6. 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
  7. Restart your computer yet again
  8. Download and install Cisco Systems VPN Client 64 or 32 bit. Extract the msi install package and run it.
  9. 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”
