I'm trying to run OpenVPN as a portable application and to that effect have installed it on a Windows 7 machine, copied the files to another Windows 7 machine and manually restored the registry settings using a .reg file. Whenever I try to run OpenVPN GUI I get the following error:
Error opening registry for reading HKLM\SOFTWARE\OpenVPN
I have verified that the key mentioned is indeed in the registry at the correct location with the correct values yet the GUI still complains. I've also tried running the GUI as an administrator (I'm logged in as an administrator) and changing the compatibility modes but nothing helped.
If I use OpenVPN Portable (
OpenVPNPortable_1.6.6.paf.exe) it has the same problem.
Any ideas how I can fix this?
