Install Cisco VPN Client on Windows 7/8.1/10

One last error that may occur on Windows 8.1/10 is the following:

Reason 442: Failed to enable Virtual Adapter


In this case, you’ll need to edit the following registry key:


in the following way:

32 bit: from “@oem8.inf,%CVirtA_Desc%;Cisco Systems VPN Adapter” to “Cisco Systems VPN Adapter

64 bit: from “@oem8.inf,%CVirtA_Desc%;Cisco Systems VPN Adapter for 64-bit Windows” to “Cisco Systems VPN Adapter for 64-bit Windows

Well, that’s all! Now you can import your .pcf files and start a VPN connection with your private networks.
