TAP install fails 2.3.4-002 Windows 8.1 - Fix

Postby chiefvelo » Sat Jul 26, 2014 2:34 pm

I finally found the solution to installing TAP again on windows. The REG edit worked perfectly for me.

Alternative 3

There is a registry key that some users have found interfering with the TAP driver installation. If you're not comfortable with regedit, please contact our support staff for assistance - you can easily break your pc here!

1. Backup the registry (regedit > export)
2. In start>run>cmd>regedit, browse to the following registry entry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network
3. Rename the key called Config to Config.bak

After renaming this key, re-run our windows openvpn installer and it should be able to install the TAP adapter this time.

Hope this helps someone else.
