Cisco VPN Client Error 27848 on Vista

Cisco VPN Client Error 27848 on Vista

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??


RE: Cisco VPN Client Error 27848 on Vista

What version of Vista?

RE: Cisco VPN Client Error 27848 on Vista

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


RE: Cisco VPN Client Error 27848 on Vista

What version of the client are you using.

RE: Cisco VPN Client Error 27848 on Vista

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
