Installing Cisco VPN Client and SonicWall Global VPN Client on Windows 10 Upgrade

UPDATE 08/24/2016: The Windows 10 Anniversary Update broke my Cisco VPN Client again. The guide here got me back on track.

So you've upgraded to Windows 10 and been promised everything will keep working just as before... but one of the most important apps you have is now broken! This is what happened to me when upgrading to Windows 10. Both my Cisco VPN Client and SonicWall Global VPN Client stopped working. Fortunately, there is a fix... and it is surprisingly pretty.

In comes TechyGeeksHome to the rescue! They have put together a great utility to help rectify these issues (specifically for Cisco VPN, but works for SonicWall Global VPN too).

  1. Uninstall your VPN(s).
  2. Go to http://blog.techygeekshome.info/2016/01/cisco-vpn-client-how-to-make-it-work-with-windows-10.
  3. Download the Windows 10 fix package.
  4. Run the included WinFix.exe (by Citrix)
  5. Run the included DNE Update (by Citrix)
  6. Install the Cisco VPN MSI (the exe will not work) (msi for x64 can be found here according to Google search)
  7. Run the included CiscoVPNClientFixx (by TechyGeeksHome)
  8. If you also want to use SonicWall Global VPN, you can now install it as well
These steps solved my issues and I am back up and running on Windows 10 + VPN thanks to TechyGeeksHome.
