Reinstalling OpenVPN to show install driver screen again

Post by cyberkryption » Wed Dec 06, 2017 10:27 am

Hello Everyone,

Here is my issue, I have an openvpn install that will not install on a Dell Laptop , we will call this laptop 1. I have an identical Dell laptop, called laptop 2 which installed ok.

I have followed information here to debug - see ... TAPDrivers

I have followed section 7 and removed drivers via pnputil and looked at the

In setup.api.log it clearly states that the driver is not trusted and fails because win10 does not allow untrusted drivers.

Failed Install

Good install

Both dell laptps are win10 with secure boot and are bitlocker encrypted. I therefore can do something like set testsigning on via bcdedit as it will break the boot sequence.

I think the problem is that when i installed it on laptop1 I did not specify 'always trust this driver' at the TAP driver install prompt.

How do I get the installer to rerun and re show me the screen to set the 'always trust' option

Any help appreciated
