Windows 10 Update Kills Cisco VPN - Script Fix

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

The latest Windows 10 Update (Oct 2018) killed Cisco VPN.  Found an article and it looks pretty straight-forward to fix:  https://community.spiceworks.com/how_to/149345-cisco-vpn-uninstalled-removed-by-windows-update

I am wondering if anyone has written any scripts for this fix already -- and are willing to share.

I am pretty certain how to proceed.   I will check for Windows 10.  I will check for Cisco Software Installed.  Then I will do the download and repair and the registry edit...

Thanks.

I wrote a script.  It is pretty basic.  The heart of the script is to download the MSI for Cisco VPN and then issue a Shell as Admin command:

msiexec.exe /i "%ltsvcdir%\packages\CiscoVPNpackage.msi" /qn /norestart

And then Registry Set Value:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\CVirtA\DisplayName

Value:  Cisco Systems VPN Adapter for 64-bit Windows

Pretty straight-forward.
