To turn off the "AutoConnectOnStart" please add the previous piece of code to the XML profile:

<AutoConnectOnStart UserControllable="true">false</AutoConnectOnStart>

The XML profile can be found in the following path:

  • Windows 7 and Vista

    C:\ProgramData\Cisco\Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client\Profile\

  • Windows XP

    C:\Document and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Cisco\Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client\Profile

Mac OS X and Linux



Also you can disable the autostartup-entry in msconfig.

  1. Type in the start-field msconfig
  2. Go to the tab "startup"
  3. Disable the AnyConnect-entry

Hmmm, I don't want disable autostart, I just want to manually disable in windows that I can connect at home to my home network and then manually enable it again -> I want that everything is working ok when I'm back to company. – Micky Oct 3 '13 at 19:24
So you want to disable the client? Can't you just stop the service from the tray-icon or stop the process in the task-manager? – Christian Woerz Oct 3 '13 at 19:24
Hmmm I have diffrent screen as you show me. – Micky Oct 3 '13 at 19:25
