That same version is working fine for me on a 64-bit Windows 7 PC - whether in demo mode or logging into an actual ASA.

Have you tried launching against an actual ASA?

I do not have the actual ASA appliance.

So the ASDM may not be working at all on your PC.

Try directing it to login to 12.17.36.51. If ASDM is working at all you should at least get an authentication prompt from my lab ASA.

Re: Cisco ASDM Demo for Windows

I have tried this on both 32 bit and 64 bit Widows 7 PC. It's still not working. Moreover I have tried two different versions.

Can U confirm that the latest version works for you?

Re: Cisco ASDM Demo for Windows

The IP 12.17.36.51 is a virtual IP? What should be the username and password? The defaut cisco/cisco does not work.

Re: Cisco ASDM Demo for Windows

That's a real ASA and real IP. I was just checking if your ASDM works when launching to a real ASA. Prompting for the password woud indicate your ASDM is functional.

Re: Cisco ASDM Demo for Windows

It's indeed prompting username/password. How can I fix this demo version issue?

Re: Cisco ASDM Demo for Windows

Try watchg the Java console when trying to lauch the demo version (click the little coffee cup icon on the bottom right of the launcher to show Java console).

My successful launch results in something like this in the Java console:

Re: Cisco ASDM Demo for Windows

Is it possible for you to update your Java to a current Java 7 (JRE 1.7) version?

New Member

Re: Cisco ASDM Demo for Windows

I have tried different java version, for me it seems like asdm problem. The asdm installation finishes in less than 15 seconds and open up the gui window.

I realize that this is late, but it may help later people: Try uninstalling and reinstalling the ASDM after updating the Java version.

which Java version did u try?

New Member

Cisco ASDM Demo for Windows

We have a standard older one that we use: 1.7u9. The key was completely uninstalling the ASDM before installing JAVA though.

There was a 7.4 version as

There was a 7.4 version as recently as a month ago on the download page. It appears to have been removed when I checked today.

If you open a TAC case they should be able to provide a special file publish for you.

I had the same issue. My w7

I had the same issue. My w7 machine had a java x64 installed. This was my problem, because ASDM is a 32-bit application it also need a 32 bit java client. After installing the 32bit java client ( jre 7u45) it has solved my problem.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Niels
