CISCO VPN Client Running on WIndows XP Pro on a 64-bit processor

-Will the Cisco VPN client run on Windows XP Professional that is running on a 64 bit processor.  Not a 64 bit OS.
-I understand all the pieces about anyconnect and thrid party apps.  I also understand that the Cisco VPN client will not run on the 64 bit OSs.  Just want to know if the app will run on a 32 bit OS running ona 64 bit chipset.

If you are running Windows Vista x64, there is a third party client called NCP Secure Entry Client.  You can import your Cisco VPN client settings to this client.  It's not freeware, but it solves the x64 Vista compatibility issue.

But in this case it will be working on your computer:)

I do not have access to the Cisco pages as I have not account.   Do not want any third party apps.  Just want to run the Cisco VPN Client on Windows XP/Windows 7 32-bit that is running on a 64-bit chipset.
