-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.

    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.
