Windows 8 and 8.1 VPN, Remote Access Connection Manger failed to start

    Question

  • So, I've gone as far as to refresh my windows 8 installation, but this problem persists. This issue is happening on a clean install of windows 8, and it appears on windows 8.1.

    I have set up a VPN through the network and sharing center. This VPN does not automatically start with the computer. I've traced it to this issue in the event viewer:

    Remote Access Connection Manager failed to start because the Protocol engine [IKEv2] failed to initialize. The request is not supported.

    Event ID: 20063

    Level Date and Time Source Event ID Task Category
    Error 10/20/2013 6:56:28 PM RemoteAccess 20063 None "Remote Access Connection Manager failed to start because the Protocol engine [IKEv2] failed to initialize. The request is not supported.
    "

    This error happens at each start up, although I can start the service manually without issue. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this?  I would like to not have to manually start my VPN each time I turn on my computer.
