Unhappy ASC 9.3 under WIndows 7 64bit

We're using a licensed pool of around 50 Clients with ASC 9.3 for remote access issues.
Now we are testin new notebooks with Win7-64bit OS, but the client does not install and reports a non installable LAN driver.
Isn't it possible to use it under Win7 or is there a workaround ?

Thanks for your help.

Can install fine with a couple of security prompts to Windows 7.

However, to get the routing right, the client has to be "Run As Administrator", not just started automatically under an account with Admin rights. You must quit and select Run As Administrator to start it again.

Very annoying having to instruct users.

Hi Simon,

this is true for the Astaro SSL VPN Client, but not for the Astaro Secure Client as of the user rights
ASC 9.2 and Astaro IPSec Client 10.x runs fine under Windows7 without any problem.

Regards

Achim

Yes, but prefer SSL client.

The Astaro ASC Client is the NCP Client and works very fine under Windows 7 x64, test the last Version from the NCP Site....
