Cannot create directory eeor

Post by GospodinVolk » Sat Dec 19, 2020 6:13 pm

Hello
I´m new with OpenVPN, and I´m trying different things. After an unsuccesfull first attemp, I tried to start with a fresh new PKI directory, but I´m no longer able to operate; even the command ./easyrsa gives me the following error:
# ./easyrsa
mkdir: cannot create directory `C:/Archivos de programa\openvpn': File exists

Easy-RSA error:

Cannot create C:/Archivos de programa/openvpn/easy-rsa/pki (permission?)

I tried to uninstall, but this is not the solution. Ehat can I do? Thanks in advance

You cannot create files in that directory without Administrator privileges.

I think that that is not the point, because the first time I ran the easyRSA configuration I did it in the same way, with thw same permissions, and worked properly

Solution.... uninstalling OpenVPN and installing it again in another directory
