Cisco Anyconnect: Failed to initialize connection subsystem windows update

UPDATE: You can use kb3023607


This issue was introduced by windows update KB3023607 and KB3034682 and KB3021952

fix1 (work for me)
uninstall KB3023607, KB3034682 , KB3021952
reinstall the cisco anyconnect client (I used version 3.1.06079)

fix option 2:

  1. Close the Cisco AnyConnect Window and the taskbar mini-icon
  2. Right click vpnui.exe in the “Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client” folder. (I have it in “C:\Program Files (x86)\Cisco\Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client\”
  3. Click on the “Run compatibility troubleshooter” button
  4. Choose “Try recommended settings”.
  5. The wizard suggests Windows 8 compatibility.
  6. Click “Test Program”.  This will open the program.
  7. Close


Key Not Valid for Use in Specified State error installing Anyconnect

If you get this error upon trying to install Cisco Anyconnect:
Key Not Valid for Use in Specified State

Danish translation:
Nøglen er ikke gyldig for anvendelse i den angivne tilstand.

Do the following:

Move the folder RSA from

C:\Users\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA to say C:\RSA (just in case there should be a need to restore it) then try installing again.
This folder appears to act as a cache and should be rebuilt automatically as required.
