VPN client disconnected and failing to enable virtual adapter

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -


I don’t know how to fix this CISCO VPN Client error, everything worked just fine before the update of my Windows 8 to Windows 8.1. I expected that these updates will improve the performances of my laptop. Can anyone help me please to fix this error ? Please help me to configure the CISCO client.

Thank you experts !
