How do I get SonicWALL Global VPN to work with Windows 8.1?

    I have been running SonicWALL Global VPN v4.7.3.0403 on Windows 8 without trouble for more than a year. Today I upgraded to Windows 8.1 RTM and noticed that it disabled my Global VPN connection. I tried to repair the situation by uninstalling and reinstalling Global VPN, but that suddenly caused my computer to lose all network connectivity whatsoever. I uninstalled Global VPN again and connectivity was restored. At this point it appears that Global VPN v4.7.3.0403 is incompatible with Windows 8.1. Has anyone figured out a way to make it work?

    Here are some links to others who appear to be having the same problem:

    Does anyone know if it's possible to connect to a Sonicwall VPN without the Sonicwall Global VPN client?

    I'm stuck away from work here in Liverpool due to heavy snow and can't get administrator access to any machine here, so I can't install the usual Sonicwall Global VPN client to connect to work!

    I'm running Windows 7 64 bit, if anyone knows any way I could get connected with or without the official Sonicwall client, and without administrator access, I'd be very much in your debt! (e.g. is there a portable version available??) Thanks, Sam ;)
