(Everyone other than Coast Guard look here)
The Coast Guard download site below requires you to login with your CAC first
Windows 8 users click here for information on how to use your CAC on your computer.

Download ActivClient from the Coast Guard Portal:
NOTE: Requires CAC login from your work computer
There is a fix for the 144 CAC card not working on your computer. Contact your IT support and have TISCOM tech bulletin 341 run on your machine. This will install ActivClient 6.2. Afterwards, you will log back on to the computer, open Internet Explorer go to tools->Internet Options->Content->Certificates -- highlight all the certificates in the personal tab and delete them, Reboot the computer.
Other CAC use options:
WINDOWS 7 & 8 USERS:
Is your CAC a "Gemalto TOP DL GX4 144" or "Oberthur ID One 128 v5.5 Dual", you "may" be able to use your CAC without needing to install ActivClient.
