Cisco VPN Client 5.0.07 won't display program window



  • So my boss ran into this today, and even though this is old software getting older, I figured having it on the internet as much as possible was a good thing.

    If you Cisco VPN Client 5.0.07 won't display it's program window after you launch it (instead you see it's running in the Task Bar, and the System Tray, but the window just won't open), here are three options that should get you back on track.

    1. Alt + Tab until you've selected the VPN window (you won't see any change on screen), now Windows Key + Right Arrow. You should now see the VPN screen on the right side of the screen.

    2. task manager, find Cisco VPN Client, right client > Maximize. This should make the window full screen. Then you can change to the size you want.

    3. modify program files (x86)\Cisco VPN Client...\vpnclient.ini
      [GUI]
      WindowWidth=660
      WindowHeight=333
      WindowX=138
      WindowY=29
      VisibleTab=0
      AdvancedView=1
      LogWindowWidth=450
      LogWindowHeight=500
      LogWindowX=250
      LogWindowY=50

    Now save the .ini file and launch the client again.



  • Good to know! Thanks!
