Cisco VPN Client Crash with Comodo - Solution

One of my clients just changed over to a Cisco VPN (, but after it was installed,
my dear old XP box would hard crash at the Comodo add network dialog on submit. Nasty...

I found a solution which is to install the VPN client without the firewall which contains ZoneAlarm stuff?

Basically extract the installer and run it with

msiexec.exe /i vpnclient_setup.msi DONTINSTALLFIREWALL=1

We had problem with XP machines crashing, only when disconnecting from a link. Installing using this method has wroked for us also!

Many thanks!

What a great help! This is exactly what I'm looking for. Solve my problem with Cisco and Comodo.

Further adjustmen open vpnclient.ini (in Cisco Client folder) and make sure StatefulFirewall=0.

Thanks for the tips.
