Within the last couple weeks, Microsoft shared an error in Windows 10 on their Support Blog. In certain Windows 10 installations, RASMAN, or “Remote Access Connection Manager” is often crucial to have operating in the background. VPN features and dial-up connections are used by this Manager and many VPN connections may have trouble working when RASMAN is disabled.
Microsoft writes in their Known Issues that, “RASMAN service may stop working and you may receive the error “0xc0000005” on devices where the diagnostic data level is manually configured to the non-default setting of 0. You may also receive an error in the Application section of Windows Logs in Event Viewer with Event ID 1000 referencing “svchost.exe_RasMan” and “rasman.dll”.This issue only occurs when a VPN profile is configured as an Always On VPN (AOVPN) connection with or without device tunnel. This does not affect manual only VPN profiles or connections.”
Windows 10 older version, 1803 and 1809 aren’t affected by this bug. To alleviate this issue, you can try the Workaround, provided below:
Microsoft noted that they are hoping to fix the problem by the end of July, so keep an eye out. Check back in with Windows 10 updates, improvements and fixes on their Support blog.
