VPN client error on Win7

hi guys,

its some thing strange that i was using VPN client on Win-xp on my company laptop. It was working fine but since they have upgraded the Win7 i'm not able to connect through VPN client

1st image is about the version of VPN client and 2nd is the error that i'm getting. I'm able to get the pop-up screen to put username and password but when i put the credentials i'm getting an error that u can check in 2nd image

kindly let me know if somebody knows about the solution

VPN client error on Win7


my issue is resolved by typing the following commands in command prompt

1. Clear IPSec settings and software restriction settings

a. reg delete HKLM\software\policies\microsoft /f

b. regedit /s "c:\policies.reg"

(where c:\policies.reg is the exported from HKLM\software\policies\microsoft to target machine)

2. Rest GPO settings to their defaults :

        secedit /configure /db reset /cfg "c:\windows\security\templates\setup security.inf" /overwrite

3. Delete the registry.pol file if it exists:

         del c:\windows\system32\grouppolicy\machine\registry.pol

The group policy updated with the below command.

gpupdate \force
