Hi krzee, this would be a great howto if I could do step 4 of Build The Installer. I don't have the application: makensis. Please advise, David.

Try to install NSIS, available here: http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Main_Page

I believe you should have a MakeNSIS program installed on your start menu when this is installed, it will then ask for the *.nsis file you've created.

If running it from the command line, you probably need to find the proper directory where makensis is installed. I have no idea where this is on Windows, as I'm primarily a Linux user. In Fedora you can install NSIS via 'yum install mingw32-nsis', then you just run makensis from the command line to create a Windows installer. This is how I'm using it.

sorry to bump an old topic but running into a small problem, was curious if anyone would be able to help as I'm very very new to OpenVPN.

I've gone through the tutorial to get the wrapper installed but I keep getting the Self-validation of OpenVPN-InstCfgwiz failed. :|

I can see the script connect to my webhost and downloading the files and I have the .md5 files in there properly.

any help is appreciated :)
