NetExtended VPN Client error: Initializing engine...failed!

I cannot for the life of me figure out why I, all of a sudden, get the error "Initializing engine...failed!" trying to connect via NetExtender VPN Client. I have tried absolutely everything from clean uninstall using the Cleanup Tool afterward + re boot

, to installing the 32bit or 64bit Windows 10 Client. I am unable to get the client to connect any longer where it connected before. I've tried going back to different older versions. Obviously, nothing works with the latest version.

I am at a total and complete loss.

Can anybody out there help me out??

    Hi @shawnmandel , you would have to use the serial number of either the firewall or the SMA device.
