Cisco VPN client on windows 8

I'm using Windows 8 Enterprise with Cisco VPN client 5.0.07.0440 and Aladdin Etoken. When i try to connect to my VPN server i get message: "Could not load certificate ... from store Microsoft User Certificate. Reason: store empty. If you are using a smartcard or token containing a certificate, verify that it is plugged in and try again."

I found on blog that says to use Computer cert store instead of Users store, but when i delete user cert and import in computer store cert, VPN client cannot see any certs from there. The certificate is automatically installed in user store again when i remove and put my etoken in usb again. How to make VPN client use Computer store certificate?

Do you face the same issue with windows 7?

I am asking this because IPsec VPN client is not supported with Windows 8.

It has never been tested with windows 8 and its not in the roadmap as well.
