Windows 7: Cisco VPN issues on Windows 7 Beta

Cisco VPN issues on Windows 7 Beta

Build 7000. Every version of Cisco VPN I install creates a bluescreen after reboot. I've ran the DNEupdate from citrix and tried the VPN client up to 5.0.04.xxxxxxxx. I've seen some postings in various places about this, but no fixes. Can someone help?

Hi, dblizz98, and welcome to the forums.

Have you tried installing them with Vista compatibility enabled? If you have a particular version that worked in Vista I'd try that version first....

I have installed three different versions in Vista compatibility mode as well as the DNEupdate. Each time it blue screens. It won't let me into safe mode. I have to use Last Known in order to get back into windows. Not sure where to go from here. I have seen a couple articles stating that the CiscoVPN works well on 7, but no idea how it was installed. I've seen more postings about it blue screening.

If anyone has seen this or is using the VPN, let me know please.

Thanks,

David

I'm having the same issue. I've only tried one Cisco VPN build, and it bluescreens on startup. Not sure how much longer I can use Windows 7 without being able to VPN into work.

I HAD thesame issue that all of you did...

I uninstalled my norton AntiVirus and after a reboot I installed the Cisco software again...

the 5.0.04.0300 build installed correctly and did not bluescreen after a reboot. I was also able to connect.


After all that, I re-installed the symantec software and not both of them still work


hope this helps !!!

Thanks for the info. Unfortunately for me I do not have Norton or any Antivirus installed just yet. As a matter of fact I don't have anything on there except the OS with updates and now Office2007.

Have you done anything with security or any permissions? I'm doing everything as Admin, but you never know.

Thanks again,

David

I ran the install of the cisco software as compatibility mode for vista.



I upgraded my windows vista into windows 7.... that might make a difference

I don't have any AV software installed either. Mine is a vanilla Windows 7 install (not upgrade). I think all I had installed was the Windows Home Server Connector and Firefox. I did not install in Vista compatibility mode though. I'm tempted to try.

Thanks,

Ok, I located the exact version that Reich used and installed in Vista compatibility mode and it worked. If it matters, I also have UAC completely turned off. The installer complained once during the install and I chose to ignore it (apparently it wasn't fatal). No bluescreens, and the VPN connection to my office works.

Thanks Reich!!

my blue screen is a ndis.sys error. I've tried quite a bit here. If i install the vpn and then run it without rebooting, it works great! As soon as I reboot BAM....bluescreen.....

any other suggestions would be appreciated.
