OpenVPN Issue

Post by widmark » Wed Apr 11, 2012 7:30 pm

I am using OpenVPN 2.2.2. Everytime I attempt to launch OpenVPN (whether as admin or not), I receive a warning dialogue in Windows 7 as follows:

CreateProcess failed, exe=’C:\Program Files\personalVPN\bin\openvpn.exe’
cmdline=’openvpn—version’ dir=’C:\Program Files\personalVPN\bin’


I had previously been using OpenVPN with a VPN hosting company. I uninstalled, rebooted, and reinstalled OpenVPN. Please help!

sounds like your previous install and uinstall of OpenVPN left some registry keys behind....
if you're familiar with the windows registry and 'regedit' open it and look for

Code: Select all

HKLM\Software\Openvpn-GUI
Uninstall openvpn 2.2.2 and the 'personalOpenVPN' software; then remove this entire registry set and then re-install openvpn 2.2.2
