I am getting this error message when trying to install GVC SonicWall 4.2.6 on Windows 2000 service pack 4:

UpdateDriverForPlugAndPlayDevices(2) failed - virtual adapter can not be installed.
Error = No data is available.
path = 'C:\Program Files\SonicWALL\SonicWALL Global VPN Client\ ... \netSWVNIC.inf'

I tried just about everything I could, including a clean up of the "Deterministic Network Enhancer", with no luck.  How can I get SonicWall VPN client installed on my system? Screenshot of error dialog Screenshot of error dialog
