Hi,

     I'm trying to install Cisco VPN client on an Windows XP OS having service Pack 2 installed, but installation prematurly exits without any error message.  I have around 20 dell computers with windows XP & service pack 2, i'm facing same problem while I try to install cisco VPN client.
 
    Any workarounds available to get the VPN client installed successfully in windows XP?

Thanks

I would recommend disabling the Windows XP SP2 firewall (which is on by default upon install). Hopefully you wern't relying on XP SP2's firewall for security.

However, if you do want the firewall on:

Let me know if you have any questions, or need further assistance.

What version of the VPN client are you running? Is it 4.6? If not, upgrade to it since it's the most current.

Ok, go ahead and reenable the firewall, then goto the following site and try there method, if you read the feedback you'll be sure to get it up and running. You'll get it, I promise.

Make sure you uninstall any previous VPN client apps (cisco or otherwise).

Also remove any unneccesary (sp??) protocols, particularly 'Deterministic Network Enhancer', if you used other VPN clients they may not have cleaned up properly after the undelete.
