From Debian client use proxy socks5 - OK

Windows soft - NO
Error: UNUSED OPTIONS [socks-proxy]

I add socks5 proxy manualy in proxy list, but this options uses only for http-proxy.

Usually means that the option is not supported.

Yes.
socks-proxy is not supported, and socks5-proxy, socks5 proxy and etc is not supported for Windows.
But, this work on Debian. Why?

You are using two different Openvpn Products which are only related by name.

* Openvpn-Connect Client For Windows.

Or

* Openvpn-community-edition.


They are totally different: https://openvpn.net/

Maybe I put it wrong.

I need to know what settings can be set for socks5 in the configuration file in Openvpn-Connect Client For Windows (3.3.1)

You are using the wrong manual for the product you are using.

Openvpn-connect Windows does not appear to support socks-proxy

Use Openvpn Community Edition.
