Having problems installing/uninstalling 2.4 I602

Postby h3ndrix » Tue Mar 07, 2017 9:56 pm

Hey guys, I have checked around the forums and web for this issue but I can't find it duplicated. I don't even have this issue on my Win10 Desktop, just my brand new laptop.

When trying to install a config package from pF Sense the install just hangs on 'amending PATH'. I let it run all night once and it looked like it was installed successfully but then would never get a handshake when trying to connect. When trying to uninstall and reinstall, the tool hangs at 'removing from PATH.'

I have gone as far as removing TAP individually then trying to remove OpenVPN. No dice. I went into SafeMode and was able to get both uninstalled! But then it would hang on reinstallation saying TAP couldn't be installed (in SafeMode). So I installed TAP separately, and still no handshake. I have also tried forgoing the config package and just installing OpenVPN by itself, nothing. Went through registry and manually deleted anything related to OpenVPN. Nothing. Should I reformat?

I just double clicked the bugger on my desktop computer and it connects flawlessly.

You need to check the pfSense website for that.

Otherwise, download openvpn and install it by running the installer as administrator.

I've done that: "I have also tried forgoing the config package and just installing OpenVPN by itself, nothing. "

No, the same problem. Just hangs during install and even uninstall.
