Need to use the Cisco VPN Client in Windows 10? There is a way to get it working on Windows 10… but it just involves a few additional steps..
- Run the installer vpnclient-winx64-msi-5.0.07.0440-k9.exe
- Install dneupdate64.msi
- Edit the registryWith Regedit open, locate the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and click the drop-down icon. Then do this again for System, CurrentControlSet, Services, and finally, CVirtA.
From there, double-click DisplayName and change the value data to “Cisco Systems VPN Adapter” (without quotes) if you’re using the x86 32-bit version of the software or “Cisco Systems VPN Adapter for 64-bit Windows” (again, without quotes) if you’re on the 64-bit version.
For reference, the original value data entry should look like this:
32-bit (x86): @oem8.ifn,%CVirtA_Desc%;Cisco Systems VPN Adapter
64-bit (x64): @oem8.ifn,%CVirtA_Desc%;Cisco Systems VPN Adapter for 64-bit Windows
Once you’ve made the appropriate changes to your registry, restart Windows and you’re done.
Hope this has helped you install it on Windows 10 🙂
