ISA Firewall Client 2004 breaks Windows 7


There must be an update from Microsoft for Windows 7 that causes an imcompatibility with Win7.  Telltale problems around here:

  • FlexLM License servers on local machines filled log files with “internal error” until the disk was full. No other errors were present in the log file.
  • Visual Studio 2008 web server appears to hang and do nothing when debugging a project.  Lots of posts about ipv6 problems and firewall issues, but ISA client was the issue.

There are far newer versions of the client and we will try one of those to see if it helps.
