I wanted to test AnyConnect on Windows 8
I got an error when "checking profiles updates".
When I put a xml profile file on C:\ProgramData\Cisco\Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client\Profile , I got an error "Failed to load preferences"
Has someone succeeded in connecting AnyConnect on Windows 8?
Is there an incompatibility? (and no workaround?)
Since this is the f o o t b a l l season, I call Illegal motion by the Help Desk. There is no problem and 3.1 apparently does work with Win 8. The error I received this morning was that the VPN client wont start from a remote desktop session. When I got that, I responded "Yea, that's right." I apologize for putting the keyboard in gear before all the details had been loaded up. So I'm back to the one user out of many that can't get AnyConnect to work on his Win 7 laptop but won't bring the machine in to have it re-imaged or leave it with me to do detailed debugging. Ya'll have a great day and thanks.
We recommend 3.1MR1 or 3.0MR10. If it is failing with a Host Scan error, this is because your head-end Host Scan is out of date. If it's failing with a different error, please email us a DART (Diagnostics bundle) at email@example.com and we will be glad to investigate for you.
Had the same issue with version 3.0.08057 and resolved it by adding the following lines to the file
C:\ProgramData\Cisco\Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client\
AnyConnectLocalPolicy.XML - add it at the bottom, right above the last line "
Still checking why that solved it, but thought it is worth the share...
Try version 3.1.02026
For me it worked.
I was using old client. Then tried this solution proposed earlier.
That didn't help, so I downloaded latest build and it worked. Mind you that I didn't unistall old client and didn't check if the registry key has been modified by new client.
