“To work around this problem, restore the registry string values with the following variable path to rastls.dll:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RasMan\PPP\EAP\13
ConfigUiPath %SystemRoot%\System32\rastls.dll
IdentityPath %SystemRoot%\System32\rastls.dll
InteractiveUIPath %SystemRoot%\System32\rastls.dll
Path %SystemRoot%\System32\rastls.dll
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RasMan\PPP\EAP\25
