Support Windows on ARM (natively)

Post by rubin » Mon Mar 08, 2021 3:37 pm

For Windows, OpenVPN currently supports x86 (32-bit) and x64 (64-bit). For some time now, Microsoft has been working on Windows on ARM64, most recently with their "Surface Pro X" range of devices.

It would be nice if OpenVPN could release installers (including TAP) for Windows on ARM64!

Gladly! Tomorrow or the day after, I receive my Surface Pro X device, would love to help out and tinker with OpenVPN on Windows. Is there a separate project for the TAP driver? or is it an OpenVPN thing?
