openvpn-gui.exe is not recognized

Post by JonatasP » Mon Jul 29, 2019 8:27 pm

Hello, I'm using windows 10, and the latest version of openvpn client.
I need to run openvpn-gui from the command line, but I'm not succeeding.
When trying to execute any command from openvpn-gui.exe I have the information that "openvpn-gui.exe is not recognized as an internal or external command"
Can anyone help me with this problem?

This is really embarrassing, I forgot that. I will post here the procedure to help others anyway:
1 - Open the Start Search, type in “env”, and choose “Edit the system environment variables”
2 - Click the “Environment Variables…” button.
3 - Under the "System Variables" section (the lower half), find the row with "Path" in the first column, and click edit.
4 - Click “New” and type in the new path you want to add.
5 - Click "Ok" on all dialogs.
