Windows 10: Cisco ASDM ‘This app can’t run on your PC’

KB ID 0001574


Whys isn’t Java dead yet? 🙁 Anyway, I tried to connect to a clients ASDM today, and from my Windows 10 machine, I got the following error;

ASDM This App cant Run on your PC

This app can’t run on your PC
To find a version for your PC, check with the software publisher.


If you are launching straight for the desktop open the properties of the ASDM shortcut, and look at the ‘Target‘ value.

ASDM Target

Change it to;

C:\Windows\system32\wscript.exe invisible.vbs run.bat

Apply > OK.

Fix ASDM Target

Try again.

If you are launching from the ‘Start Menu’ Open the file location of the shortcut;

ASDM Can run on this PC

And change the target to “C:\Windows\system32\wscript.exe invisible.vbs run.bat“. > Apply > OK.

ASDM Can run on this PC Path
