Install Issue - Noob

Post by tictac » Sun Jan 31, 2016 12:06 am

I've searched for this error message but haven't been able to find anything.

Every time I try to install I get this error message:

"the installation cannot continue as openvpn is currently running. please close all open vpn instances and re-run the installer"

solved it on my end – stupid cause of my own creation.

I have all setup files in a folder on the PC, and they are all just named after the program they install; so the install file for this was named OpenVPN.exe, and since the installer saw "openvpn.exe" was a currently-running process, it wouldn't continue with the install. So just had to rename the setup file to something else.
