Connect open-vpn gui without administrator rights

Post by apoklyps3 » Wed Apr 17, 2019 2:13 pm

Hi.

I had installed openVPN at my workplace when we used to have local administrator rights and and used it for some years, but now the administrative rights have been removed and when I try to connect it always ask to add open-vpn to administrators group wich, of course, I can't.
Any way to connect again unless I somehow do that task? Since drivers are all installed, TAP & and everything.
Any way to connec while not having administrative rights?

In other words, at this time, if I get "Require membership in OpenVPN Administrators group" message, I'm screwed, correct?
No way to circumvent that.

Ask Microsoft if there is any way to circumvent their security model.
