Cisco VPN Client for Windows 8 / Windows Server 2012.

Till now Cisco has not launched VPN client for Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012, but it is always said ‘Where there is a will , there is a way’. In few of your minutes you will be able to run you Cisco VPN client successfully.

  1. Install Cisco VPN client , depending on your system specks (x86 or x64).
  2. Press (windows + R) or go to run command.
  3. Type ‘regedit’.
  4. Navigate to the following registry key: “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\CVirtA”
  5. Double click DisplayName.
  • 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

After it , just open your Cisco VPN client and you will be able to connect successfully.

    Yeppie.. I got it working on windows 8 also… from this post….(http://www.maas360.com/maasters/forums/laptop-management/show/104/how-to-resolve-cisco-dne-errors-when-installing-the-cisco-client-deterministic-network-enhancer)

    Steps:
    1. Download “WINFIX.exe” from “http://www.citrix.com/go/lp/dne.html”
    2. Download “dneUpdate.msi” from “http://www.citrix.com/go/lp/dne.html”
    3. Remove VPN client completely (delete the Cisco folder as well)
    4. Reboot machine
    5. Run WINFIX then run dneUpdate,msi
    6. reboot System again.
    7. Install VPN and enjoy

    When doing above steps, there is no need to do above mentioned steps 🙂

    But yes your post worked for me on Server windows.
