The process of making this work is very simple, download the fix for the version of Windows 8/8.1 that you have (x86 or x64).

You will be presented with a zip file, unzip the file and you will then get to the MSI installer for this fix.

Install the MSI file on your machine (we have made it into MSI format so that it can be used for deployment in large environments via SCCM, WDS, WSUS, Group Policy etc...). Reboot your machine and then try and connect again, you should now find that your Cisco VPN Client connects successfully.


If you wish to add this to your SCCM environment for the Software Catalog or OSD processes, you can use the following installation script to install this software using the MSI:

 msiexec.exe /i "MSIFILENAME.msi" /q /norestart
