Right-click on the OpenVPN client icon and run as administrator.

Hint: You can also right-click and run as administrator every time you open the program.
We recommend to use our configuration installer, which automatically installs and configures your OpenVPN installation.
Just click on the button at the top to download it, execute it with administrator rights (important!) and select your language.
If you do not want to use our automatic installer you can download our configuration files and install them manually, too.
Click on of the button below to download all available configuration files or only the single one for this location.
After them extract all files, edit the userpass.txt (enter your customer-id and api-key) and copy all files to your OpenVPN configuration folder (by default: C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\config).
Proceed until you see this screen. If you installed OpenVPN to the default path you can click on Next, otherwise change the path to the OpenVPN\config folder.
You can decide between a Complete installation or Custom installation:
All available locations (configuration files) will be installed to your system.
You can select which locations (configuration files) you want to install.
If you selected the Complete installation, you can skip this Step.
During Custom installation you can select which locations you want to install and which not. If you need further help, you can click on the Help button.
Proceed until you see this screen. Confirm with Yes to run the installer.
Wait until the Wizzard completed. Click on Finish.
As soon as you click on Finish a Notepad window should open. If this is your first install you have to set your customer-id in the first line and your api-key in the second line. If this is just an update, please make sure that your customer-id and api-key is still correct.
