Cisco VPN in Windows 8

When I installed Windows 8 I had som problems with my Cisco x64 5.x VPN client. You will receive an error message when trying to connect to a site saying “failed to enable virtual adapter”.

There is a thread on technet about this: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/W8ITProPreRel/thread/fe19ec2e-d1f3-4ffd-b9a5-1fdf464fcd32

The fix is to update the registry key DisplayName under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\CVirtA
