Windows 7 VPN Setup Issue

Hi,

I'm trying to set up a VPN connection into our office on a home worker's laptop, something I've done hundreds of times.

When I select 'Set up a new connection or network' from with the Network and Sharing Center and then select 'Connect to a Workplace' and click 'Next'...nothing happens. It stays on the same screen, if I click next 2 more times the connection window just goes blank and I have to CTRL,ALT,DEL out of it.

Any ideas?

He's running Windows 7 Ultimate and I've attached an image of what happens.

Thank you.

No longer needed.

Issue was due to home user using pirated software.
