I think Juniper made it pretty clear in this KB article:
There are no plans to support NS-Remote on the following platforms; please consult NS-Remote Software Release Dates and Milestones for EOL information.

Just wanted to drop a note here that someone has found a fix/workaround from the Microsoft Technet forums:
1. Stop the Volume Shadow Copy service (VSS) (which prompt an error message when I tried to install the client)
2. Install Juniper Client and ignore the error messages about the virtual adapter
3. Restart your PC
4. If Microsoft IKE and IPSec services are running, stop them
5. Import you Security Policy
6. Startup the Service SafeNet IKE Service
7. Connect to your network
This has worked for me but the only downside is that this doesn't resolve the issue with the safenet adapter not installing, so that means DNS will not function once connected to your VPN. You must access network resources using ip addresses. Also, you will need to start the Safenet IKE service after each reboot. I suggest that you should create a .bat file with the following cmd:
net start IreIKE
This is best for my needs since I only need my VPN access for remote desktop connections and not anything that relies on DNS. If you need DNS with your VPN activities I suggest installing a Win XP virtual machine to access your VPN.

Windows 7 is certainly out and Juniper has announced EOL for Netscreen remote. With that they stated they would not support any 64 bit OS with a remote VPN client.
I have beenfrantically trying Shrew soft but cannot get past Phase 1 errors. Does anybody have any success stories with this client or any other client for Windows 64 bit OS or MAC OS?
Thanks in advance.

I've installed Shrew on Windows 7 and it works fine. Although I didn't use Shrew's example on how to setup a VPN on my SSG. I just used the credentials from my NetScreen login and it works fine.

this solution is working fine, is you don't want to start the service always manually or with batch, change the device startup method in device manager.
You have to set visible hidden devices, find the Safenet Ipsec Plugin change the startup from system to automatic.
It will works.

So are juniper going to make a VPN client that supports windows 7?
the link below says it is unsupported and they have no plans to make a version that supports winodows 7... why????
will there be some other type of VPN client or are they just not doing it anymore?
