  • The Cisco VPN tends to have compatibility issues in Windows 8 & 8.1. You need to apply a small workaround as explained below –

     

    1. Open Registry editor by typing regedit in Run prompt

    2. Browse to the Registry Key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SYSTEM\\CurrentControlSet\\Services\\CVirtA

    3. Select the DisplayName to modify, and remove the leading characters from the value data upto "%;" i.e.

     

    - For x86, change the value data from something like "@oem8.inf,%CVirtA_Desc%;Cisco Systems VPN Adapter” to "Cisco Systems VPN Adapter”

     

    For x64, change the value data from something like "@oem8.inf,%CVirtA_Desc%;Cisco Systems VPN Adapter for 64-bit Windows” to "Cisco Systems VPN Adapter for 64-bit Windows”

     

    - Try connecting again

     

    Hope this will help.
