Odd tip of the day…
I was trying to install Nortel’s Contivity VPN client on my Vista laptop today and kept getting the error:
This version of the Contivity VPN Client can only be installed on Vista.
If this is a Vista system, turn off compatibility mode for the CVC installer (typically this is eac607d.exe).”
I found a blog posting in Spanish at the Universidad de Jaen that (when I translated it with Google Translate) mentioned renaming the install file to eac607d.exe. Now, why that makes any sense is beyond me, but it worked! (At least until I hit the next error.)
Next I got this error:
The version of the Nortel Contivity VPN Client that I was trying to use when I got the error above was 126.96.36.199. (I got it from a client.) I tried a plain old vanilla copy of version 188.8.131.52, and that worked!
