PPTP stopped working
I have a VPN settup using PPTP, up until yestarday it worked just fine. Then
I started getting "Error 609: A device type was specified that does not
exist.", I noticed in Network Connection that my VPN connection shows "WAN
Miniport (L2TP)", I checked in properties under the Network tab and it is set
to PPTP VPN.

I tried setting up a new VPN connection but it did the same thing, showing
"WAN Miniport (L2TP)" though it is set to PPTP.

Can someone help me with this problem?

RE: PPTP stopped working
Found the answer which fixed the problem:
This was posted by rb in the thread titled: Vista Ultimate - VPN mystery
- open cmd

uninstall miniports
>netcfg -u ms_l2tp
>netcfg -u ms_pptp


install them again (order may not be important)
>netcfg -l %windir%\inf\netrast.inf -c p -i ms_pptp
>netcfg -l %windir%\inf\netrast.inf -c p -i ms_l2tp
