Openvpn not opening at all!!

Post by hason » Tue Jul 26, 2022 5:22 am

My VPN will not open no matter what I've tried reinstalling, I've reset my pc, I've downloaded different versions and nothing seems to work. I don't see it open in my task manager, task bar or my bottom right arrow. If anyone could help me that would be fantastic I just got my pc so I don't know anything about it so if someone could walk me step by step that would be amazing. My discord is Hason#4092 and to anyone who does help me fix it I will gladly pay them for their time. Thank You !!! :D

Did you install "openvpn" or "openvpn connect" its two diffrent things. Openvpn starts as service, and have openvpn gui. Openvpn connect indeed have a shortcut on desktop when you install. Do you have error or something ?

Hi,

Try to clean the temp folder in your machine:
1. Win+R > %Temp% > Ctrl+A > Shift + Delete > Enter
2. After this, reboot the machine.

If the issue still persists, please use the below approach sequence:
1. Uninstall the OpenVPN Connect App.
2. Reboot the laptop.
3. Win+R > %Temp% > Ctrl+A > Shift + Delete > Enter
4. Reboot the laptop.
5. Installed the latest version of OpenVPN Connect App for windows. - Installer Link
