VPN Anyconnect forbidden by system policy

Hey anyone,

When I try to download the VPN Client I get the following error:

Contact your system administrator.  The installer failed with the following error: This installation is forbidden by system policy. Contact your system administrator.

I am using Windows Vista.  Since it doesn't tell me which system policy is forbidding it, I can't change it.  I need HELP please.

Thanks in advance for anybody's help.

Hi,

To install the AnyConnect client on the computer you need administrator rights on the local PC.

After the client is installed you can connect without having admin rights.

We will get to auto-install issueafter this.

The manual installation also fails with this message:

The system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation.

This sounds like I have some setting that needs to be unset for this program.
