I had to use cisco Anyconnect VPN client on windows 8 X64 and it was giving me errors. usually something like : “The VPN Client driver has encountered an error” when I was trying to connect.

well found the fix by stalking cisco forums.

  1. Go to the Windows 8 Start Screen by pressing the Windows key.
  2. Type regedit to initiate an application search, then press Enter to launch regedit.
  3. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\vpnva
  4. Locate the key DisplayName.
  5. Right-click this key and select Modify.
  6. #1 for Windows x64 and #2 for windows 32 bit :
    1. In the value data field, erase everything and replace it with Cisco AnyConnect VPN Virtual Miniport Adapter for Windows x64
    2. If you are running a 32-bit system, perform the same steps, but instead replace the entry with Cisco AnyConnect VPN Virtual Miniport Adapter for Windows x86
  7. Restart the Cisco AnyConnect client. The issue should now be resolved.
