Right from the release document:

You cannot use InstallShield to install the VPN Client on a PC running Windows Vista. You must use the MSI installer if you are using Windows Vista, because Vista does not support installation using InstallShield.

From Cisco, but you need a contract number - it's not a free download.

Quote:

The Cisco VPN Client is included with all models of Cisco VPN 3000 Series concentrators and Cisco ASA 5500 Series security appliances (excluding ASA 5505), and most Cisco PIX 500 security appliances. Customers with Cisco SMARTnet® support contracts and encryption entitlement may download the Cisco VPN Client from the Cisco Software Center at no additional cost. For customers without Cisco SMARTnet support contracts, a media CD containing the client software is available for purchase. This CD does not provide access to the most current patch releases.
