If you are a user of Cisco VPN client then you may come across this error during either installation or when you try to uninstall the client:

Cisco VPN Client Error 27850

How to make the legacy Cisco VPN client worth with Windows 10 [2020 Updated]

Total Time: 15 minutes


cisco error

If you are trying to install Cisco VPN Client on a Windows 10 machine, then you will probably get an error telling you that it is incompatible with the version of Windows you are using like the above image.

Well, this is true, however, there is a way around this by using the steps below.

Download the VPN Fix Package

First of all you need to download our VPN fix package for Windows 10 which you can download using the link below:

Download Cisco VPN Fix Package

Scroll down the page a little and you will see the blue Download button like the one above.

You will also need to ensure that you have the installer for the legacy Cisco VPN client software, as this is licenced, we cannot give you a download for it.

Extract the Cisco VPN Fix Package

Once you have these you should extract the VPN fix package which will give you the following utilities:

WinFix.exe – Windows Fixup for DNE
DNEUpdatex86.msi – DNE Updater for x86 Operating Systems (Provided by Citrix)
DNEUpdatex64.msi – DNE Updater for x64 Operating Systems (Provided by Citrix)
CiscoVPNClientFixx64.exe – Cisco VPN Client Fix for x64 Operating Systems (Provided by TechyGeeksHome)
CiscoVPNClientFixx86.exe – Cisco VPN Client Fix for x86 Operating Systems (Provided by TechyGeeksHome)

Run the Fixes in order


You have to run these utilities in a particular order to enable this to work. So, identify the architecture of the operating system you are using, for this guide we will use x64.

Run the WinFix.exe utility first and you will be presented with a box like the one above.

You should click on the Start Windows Fixup button to start the process, once completed you will get a message in the utility advising that the installation is complete.

DNE Update Utility

DNE Utility

You can then move on to installing the DNE Update utility. So double click the DNEUpdatex64.msi and you will see a standard installation wizard like the one above.

Install Legacy Cisco VPN Client

You can then go ahead and install the Cisco VPN Client which should now install without any problems – but ensure that you use the MSI file to start the install process, NOT the EXE file.

However, this is not the end of the process as the VPN Client, although successfully installed, will not actually connect to your VPN profiles.

Enabling the VPN Profiles

To resolve this issue, you should now install the CiscoVPNClientFixx64.exe utility by again just running through all the wizard defaults.

Once this is complete, you should reboot your computer. Then you should be able to fire up your Cisco VPN Client and connect to your VPN profiles without any trouble!

Windows 8.1 & Windows 10

If you are running Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 and are having trouble with your Cisco VPN Client then you should take a look at our Cisco Microsite by clicking the link below for guides and utilities:

Cisco CLI – How to remove the “–More–” prompt when running long commands

memorable business logo cisco 1024x507

If you are a Cisco CLI user, you will be familiar with the “–More–” prompt when you run a command that spreads over a number of pages. This can be infuriating if you run a command that brings back hundreds or even thousands of pages.

So, if you want to run a command but have it run through all the pages in one go, you can follow this simple guide.


Once you have logged into your CLI terminal, just run this command before you start to run any other commands (this assumes you are logged in as a privileged administrator:

Terminal pager 0

This will then make the current terminal session now longer stop when you run a command and will not request you to press a key when you get to the end of the page.

Cisco – How to change or view IP helper address

cisco logo red grey and green

If you are using Cisco switches, you may find that you need to configure IP helper addresses to give devices on different VLAN’s the correct direction to your DHCP server.

To do this, you can use the following commands:

Show ip int vlan #
  • # = the number of your VLAN

To view the current vlan configuration:

This will bring back all the information about your current VLAN, including where (if at all) your IP helper address is pointing to and should look similar to this:

Helper IP Address
Cisco Helper IP Address

To configure or change where your switch is pointing its IP helper addresses to, you can use the following command:

NOTE: These commands assume that your current IP helper address is and you want to change it to

  • Config t
  • Int vlan #
  • TO REMOVE IP HELPER: no ip helper-address
  • TO ADD IP HELPER: ip helper-address
  • Exit
  • Wr mem
