OpenVPN 2.5 client for Windows, garbage in the registry

Post by rimbalza » Thu Nov 12, 2020 7:19 am

Hi, I used the 2.5 beta versions of OpenVPN client package on Windows and switched to release now.
Running Autoruns to remove some other programs, I found entries related to OpenVPN that seem garbage left in the registry I suppose by the installer

that point to the registry here

This is not something that will disappear on reboot since I have done it several times.

Looks like something accidentally left over from the beta installers.

MSI installer for openvpn 2.5 does not install service for automatic startup of vpn. I have had to revent to 2.4.10. I need this to work in 2.5. The only difference between the two is one installs with exe and the other MSI. The exe installed everything.
