OpenVPN setup difficulties on Vista: "access denied"
Posted on 2009-05-12
I am not Vista-savvy. I am trying to install and configure OpenVPN. However when I try to copy the config files into C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\config I get "access denied".
The original installation of OpenVPN was done as a user with admin privileges (so I think). However, I get the same result when logged in as another admin user.
In poking around a bit, I found that the folder was set to not have all permissions. So I changed the permissions, even though as an administrator this should not have been necessary. AFter doing that, I was able to put the files into the folder and modify them.
This seems wrong. What is going on?
