Cisco VPN client on Windows 8

I recently installed Cisco VPN client on Windows 8. Everything was OK until I tried to connect, than I was getting  this:

Error 442: Failed to Enable Virtual Adapter

To fix this you need to do this :

  1. Open Registry editor (Win + R, type “regedit”, return or run)
  2. Browse to the Registry Key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SYSTEM\\CurrentControlSet\\Services\\CVirtA
  3. Select the DisplayName to modify
  4. Remove the leading characters from the value data upto “%;”
    • For x86 something like @oem8.inf,%CVirtA_Desc%;Cisco Systems VPN Adapter”
    • For x64 something like @oem8.inf,%CVirtA_Desc%;Cisco Systems VPN Adapter for 64-bit Windows”
  5. Try connecting again

I found the solution here.
