The change during new installation

Post by jugan1 » Wed Jul 15, 2020 2:42 pm

Hello,

My system: Windows 10 Pro.

I have one TAP Windows Adapter. I would like to have next one. This is not a problem - in cmd I have to write something like "tapinstall.exe install OemVista.inf TAP0901". But during installation next adapter, adapter ( the first ) which I have is reload. What does it means? When the first adapter is off ( his icon is grey ) and I install the second one adapter, the first one change his state to unplugged ( so his icon is in color with red "X" in left down right ). Is there a way to don't change states other adapter during the installation new one?

Why I need it? Because when I use VPN and I install new adapter, my VPN connection is restart ( this is only the first example - I have other - I write this to show that is important to me to don\t change states other adapters.

Thank you, but what is "tap adapter utilities"? When I click on Windows Menu I don't see that application (?)

When I go to tap-windows-9.21.2.exe I choose 2 first options:
TAP Virtual Ethernet Adapter
TAP Utilities

I can't choose only TAP Utilities. When I select this, the TAP Virtual Ethernet Adapter is selected automatically

It looks the name has changed, try:

Windows Menu -> OpenVPN -> Utilities -> Add new TAP-Windows virtual network adapter

Typically, the Remove option has been removed ... without notice :evil:

Thank you. Of course I try this. But I have to use this from my code so I would like to use some CMD command. Can you tell me: is there possible to add tap adapter ( this is possible because I check this ) and don't change states other tap adapters ( I can't find any options to cmd command to do this )?
