I'm trying to install a Cisco VPN client (tried the most recent BETA client and the client before that for Vista) and it keeps saying that the DNE requires a reboot first to free up locked resources and to run the install after rebooting. But with each reboot I keep getting this same message over and over. I haven't found any solutions via google... and ideas??

It is Vista Home Edition and SP1 has not been installed.

DE install completely and try again.

Make sure you have admi rights, but I have a feeling it may not work on home edition

I ran into the same problem ("Error 27848: Deterministic Network Enhancer installation requires a reboot first, to free locked resources.") while trying to install the latest version ( of the Cisco VPN Client on a Vista machine from which I had just uninstalled a previous (5.0.01.xxxx) version.

After some frustration and digging in the registry I found that the old installation left a DLL ("dneinobj.dll") of the "Determinitic Network Enhancer" registered and that a simple unregistration of this DLL fixed the problem.

For me running the following command in the "system32" folder fixed the problem:

regsvr32 /u dneinobj.dll
