I received the above error while trying to install Cisco’s VPN x64 client on my laptop.

After some investigation it turns out this error is caused by default value set by Windows 7 in the registry key

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network\MaxNumFilters

By default, this value is set to 8 and apparently can be set to a maximum value of 14. As some of the filters were used by Virtual Box, etc. I decided to set this to the maximum, rebooted and, hey presto, it installed!!
