WINTUN No Longer Working After Windows Update

Post by sooprtruffaut » Wed Jun 24, 2020 8:26 am

Hello,

Yesterday, I upgraded to Windows 10 Home Version 2004. The openvpn 2.5_git wintun technology preview installer, which had been working fine before the upgrade, can no longer install the tun adapter and the adapter is no longer available in Adapter Settings.

Has anyone else noticed this issue and can someone recommend a way to successfully install the wintun adapter once more? I've noticed a substantial improvement in speed using this adapter so I would like to get this working once more.

Thanks very much!

After a trusty uninstall, reboot and reinstall, the issue has now been resolved. Also, make sure to add the window-driver wintun entry to your config.
