hi,
Does anyone have instructions on how to install OpenVPN on vista ? I am trying to install openvpn-2.0.2-gui-1.0.3-install.exe on vista home premium and I cannot get the application to install. It generates a error message referring to TAP connection.

Could someone provides instruction and links on how to install Openvpn on vista.
