OpenVPN client installs but icon never shows

Hi all,

I have OpenVPN running on several machines already. Recently I tried to install it on my laptop. It installed OK, but after the installation... No system tray icon in the lower right corner. Double clicking the client icon just does nothing as far as I can see.

I tried reboot, remove %TEMP% files, uninstall & remove TEMP files, reboot and reinstall. Nothing seems to make a difference.

I have this version installed (Windows 10 22H2): openvpn-connect-3.4.4.3412_signed.msi

When I look at services, I see two running:
OpenVPN Agent agent_ovpnconnect
OpenVPN Connect Helper Service

How to go from here???

I managed to solve it following this post: https://forum.derivative.ca/t/resolved- ... r/269765/6

There seems to have been an error in the Windows repository; rebuilding fixed it for me (even though I have read many times that you normally would never do this).
