I presume you are trying to import the server config into the Windblows OpenVPN-GUI ?

Edit: This must be Connect-client because the OpenVPN-GUI allows server configs to be imported.

The only solution I can offer you is based on what you have posted:
OpenVPN Connect-Client does not support server configs because it is a client only.

Hide someone know how to import client onto android phone instead server profile on android and expect that server profile will connect as client profile.
