Cisco VPN Client: Reason 442: Failed to Enable Virtual Adapter on Windows 8

While on Windows Vista and Windows 7 the reason for this message is a shared connection on Windows 8 it comes from an wrong entry in the registry. To fix this, you need to go to the registry (search – regedit) and follow the path “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\CVirtA”

There you should see a key named DisplayName. For this key you need to edit the Value to “Cisco Systems VPN Adapter for 64-bit Windows” on a 64 bit Windows or “Cisco Systems VPN Adapter” for a 32 bit Windows.

After restarting the Cisco VPN Client connecting should work.
