How to Install Cisco VPN Client on Windows 10 (New installations or O/S upgrades)

The instructions below are for new or clean Windows 10 installations. Users who just upgraded to Windows 10 from an earlier Windows version, will need to first uninstall their SonicWALL VPN Client & Cisco VPN client, then proceed with the instructions below.

  1. Download and install the SonicWALL Global VPN Client from Firewall.cx’s Cisco Tools & Applications section. This is required so that the DNE Lightweight filter network client is installed on your workstation. You can later on remove the SonicWall Global Client.
  2. Download and install the Cisco VPN client (32 or 64 bit) from Firewall.cx’s Cisco Tools & Applications section.
  3. Optional: Uninstall the SonicWALL Global VPN Client.

Note: If you receive the Windows message “This app can’t run on this PC”, go to the folder where the Cisco VPN client was extracted and run the “vpnclient_setup.msi” file. If you don’t remember where the file was extracted, execute the downloaded file again and select an extraction path e.g c:\temp\ciscovpn\ so you know where to look for it.
