Windows 7: Error 711 while configuring VPN connection

11 Dec 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate
Error 711 while configuring VPN connection

I've tried to configure a VPN in my Windows 7 ultimate computer.

I'm getting error 711, the message box says -

The operation could not finish because it could not start the Remote Access Connection Manager service in time. Please try the operation again.
I've tried everything MS instructed to do in this situation with no luck.

there are 2 services which I had to start and couldn't -
  • Remote Access Connection Manager - Error 20 - the system cannot find the device specified.
  • Remote Access Auto Connection Manager - Error 1068: The dependancy Service or group failed to start.

I've seen a post that said that is could be due to the eventlog not running, it said I should delete the RTBackup folder (in c:\windows\system32\logfiles\WMI), so I did, then rebooted, and the problem remained.

deleting the RTBackup folder seemed to help most of the users who had that problem.

what should I do? I don't have the original CD which I used to install my system, can I download another one and then do an upgrade? it seems to help some of the users.
