Cisco VPN client conflicts with VirtualPC and VMware

I've figured out why Cisco VPN client refused to install properly (froze while installing the Deterministic Network Enhancer (DNE)). It conflicts with the VMware virtual network adapters.

The same thing happens when installing Microsoft VirtualPC. It just freezes, and you need to do a system restore, or you won't be able to remove or reinstall it (and it won't work either).

The solution is to temporarily disable the VMware network adapters before you install VirtualPC or Cisco VPN Client.

Thanks! Disabling the VMWare network adapters also works for the NetGear VPN client. I also had to disable my wireless for some reason.
