Spurious OpenVPN GUI icon in system tray

Post by mafo » Sat May 27, 2017 6:10 pm


after upgrading from version 2.3.16 to 2.4.2 on a Windows 7 SP1 64-bit machine, I started the OpenVPN GUI using the link on the desktop and activated the option "Launch on Windows startup". To my surprise, after the next system start, there were two OpenVPN GUI icons in the system tray. Deactivating the above option (and a restart) removed one of them. But where does the remaining one come from? Sysinternal's Autoruns does not provide an explanation...

Cheers, mafo
