It seems OpenVPN changed or removed the file location for storage of the profiles. I've searched through the docs, changelog, and a client PC for the folder location but cannot find it for the life if me! Where are profiles being stored now?

On Windows 10, the location is: %APPDATA%\OpenVPN Connect\profiles


It seems that profiles are being stored in the following location:

%ProgramFiles(x86)%\OpenVPN Technologies\OpenVPN Client\etc\profile

Though you cannot simply drop a profile into here and expect it to pop up in the client anymore.


Counterintuitively, one does not include "Roaming" in the path of the AppData variable.

%AppData%\OpenVPN Connect\profiles

The "AppData" directory variables in Windows are: %AppData% and %LocalAppData%.


New OpenVPN stores files in:

[disk]:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\OpenVPN Connect\profiles

where [disk] is your system disk (in most cases C) and USERNAME is your username.
