Reason 440. Driver Failure. Cisco VPN client


I have Asus VivoTab Smart tablet with windows 8 32 bit. I installed cisco vpn client without any issues. After configuring the settings and when clicking on connect, the following error pops up.

Secure VPN Connection terminated locally by the client.
Reason 440. Driver Failure

I searched and found a couple of solutions like changing the registry description. installing the dne service, un-installing the vpn client and re-installing etc but nothing worked. 

All drivers are upto date according to Asus LiveUpdate program. Don't know what to do. 

Please help.
