Cisco ASA and Anyconnect VPN Client

We have a Cisco ASA 5520.   Off site clients use AnyConnect VPN Client v. 2.2.0133.  When running this client directly on an off-site computer, the VPN works fine.  One vendor has to RDP to a desktop, and then opens the VPN Client.  They get the following error..
"Secure VPN via remote desktop is not supported"
Supposedly, this client version supports VPN via RDP.

Just to clarify, the vendor is using RDP to establish a session from his computer (A) into a computer that's at a remote site (B), then within that RDP session launching the VPN connection from B to the ASA using the AnyConnect client.

According to http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6120/products_tech_note09186a00809b4754.shtml#e15 this is probably a bug.  There are later versions of the AnyConnect client available, I would suggest trying one.

The vendor is RDP'ing to a computer at their site, and then VPN'ing to us.  I do not know the reasoning behind this, but I have to accommodate them.  I will upgrade the client.

Would you happen to know how this is done, and which client would you suggest?  We want to put the client onto our ASA, instead of having them install a client of their choosing.

I answered my own question.  I see how to upgrade the client.  Thanks
