Open the services management control panel by entering in the start/run box  services.msc  look for the Cisco Systems Service and verify it is set to automatic and started.  See if that helps to resolve.

          Finally, I got it.
Start | control panel | security center | windows firewall | exceptions | add port, Identify this as UDP, enter port 62515, select UPD when prompted. Close or exit out. Close windows and start VPN client. Bingo.


Thank You

Glad to hear you were able to resolve. Surprised you didn't get a Windows pop up asking you if you wanted to allow the connection when you started the client. Windows usually does this, and when you select yes it automatically configures the appropriate port.
Cheers.
