I'm trying to install OpenVPN (2.2.2) on a Windows 7 Professional x64 machine. When I run the installer, I receive an error saying it can't install TAP. The same when running the batch file.

My attempts to resolve this have been:

  1. Run as administrator
  2. Run on a different admin account
  3. Run in compatibility mode as Vista with admin privilages

Any ideas on how the issue can be resolved?

It's discussed here: - the two solutions are to either use an older OpenVPN or to turn off the driver signing requirement in Windows. Haven't tested personally. Found this looking for a solution to a different problem.
