Are any of the Cisco VPN clients compatible with 64 bit Windows?

I have this problem too.

Perhaps we should clarify the context of your question. If you are asking in the context of the traditional Cisco VPN client and IPSec VPN then Andrew is correct that there is not support for 64 bit Vista in that client. But if the context of your question includes the AnyConnect client then I believe that Cisco is supporting 64 bit Vista in the AnyConnect SSL VPN. If you are interested here is a link to the release notes:
