  • Question

  • Anyone know of an updated Cisco VPN client that will run on windows 7?

    Client Version 5.0.01.0600 (made for Windows Vista) causes fatal memory dump after install and then reboot.

    I have tried many--many different ways to get the Cisco VPN client install on Windows 7--all resulting in BSOD (ndis.sys).  I have found the following procedure has worked 100% of the time on multiple hardware platforms (including VMware):

    1.  Install Cisco DNEupdate.
    2.  Reboot
    3.  Take ownership and delete ndis.sys (in c:\windows\system32\drivers).
    4.  Take ownership and delete ndis.sys.mui (in c:\windows\system32\drivers\en-us).
    5.  Install Cisco VPN Client 5.0.04.0300.
    6.  Reboot
    7.  Windows 7 will repair itself (should take a few seconds) and automatically reboot.
    8.  Cisco VPN Client should work without any other tweaks.


    Hope this helps.
