Prevent Cisco 5.0 VPN from having windows installer configure after every reboot

Posted on 2009-04-30
Last Modified: 2012-05-06

I have installed Cisco 5.0 VPN. It works fine. But after each reboot, the Window Installer dialog box appears and it has to configure the VPN client. In the Windows Services, the startup is set to 'automatic' but the VPN does not in fact start until I manually start it. I'm not sure if it's coincedence but I installed SQL Server 2005 developer edition. This issue seemed to start after this. Any help is appreciated

    This particular thread talks about Vista, SQL 2005 and Cisco 5.0 VPN Client Issues, I suggest that you take a look -

    Thank you. Even though the thread talks about Vista instead of XP, there was mention of SQL 2005 causing problems with the VPN client.  I uninstalled SQL 2005 and the problem was resolved. Now, if I can just get them to work together...but thanks for getting me pointed in the right direction.
