Windows 8 and Cisco VPN

Windows 8 and Cisco VPN

Postby Ernie » Thu Aug 09, 2012 3:42 pm

Are you having the same connection issue I was when trying to use the Cisco VPN client?

Here’s what the message looks like:

Just to update, the legacy Cisco VPN client (5.0.07.0440 for x64, 5.0.07.0410 for x86) is working for some people. You need to apply a small workaround as explained below –

• Open Registry editor by typingregedit in Run prompt
• Browse to the Registry Key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\CVirtA
• Select the DisplayName to modify, and remove the leading characters from the value data upto "%;" i.e.

    ♦ For x86, change the value data from something like "@oem8.inf,%CVirtA_Desc%;Cisco Systems VPN Adapter” to "Cisco Systems VPN Adapter”
    ♦ For x64, change the value data from something like "@oem8.inf,%CVirtA_Desc%;Cisco Systems VPN Adapter for 64-bit Windows” to "Cisco Systems VPN Adapter for 64-bit Windows”

    Bad: @oem8.inf,%CVirtA_Desc%,Cisco Systems VPN Adapter for 64-bit Windows
    Good: Cisco Systems VPN Adapter for 64-bit Windows
• Try connecting again

Please do revert back if this solution does not work.
