I am installing WatchGuard SSL Vpn software which is using Open VPN software and it has TAP network driver but I can't install it unattended. Does anybody know how to install OpenVPN un-attended including TAP-Windows adapter?

I do not understand. It should only need to be installed once? Or are you trying to remotely install, and requires someone at the remote machine?

Are you running the installer as administrator BTW?

Well, if nothing helps you could just transfer a copy of the installation folder of the TAP drivers (in C:\Program Files\TAP-Windows), and then run the bin\addtap.bat resp. the devcon command included ;-).

Yes, I failed to see it is different if you install for the first time, or just add another TAP adapter...

The main thing is making it totally fully quiet to install..
