OpenVPN and TAP-Windows adapter ClientVPN not found fix

The other day I wanted to access company network, so I had to install OpenVPN. The network administrator sent me all the files (certificates and some other configuration files). I installed the certificates and ran the config file. It was actually some executable file and it opened the command prompt. It was doing something, but on the end it yield error.

Because I’m not a network or VPN expert, I had not idea what to do?


I Googled around and didn’t find any useful. I contacted the network administrator with this problem. He replied with a very simple solution. OpenVPN actually adds a new network connection. For some reason, it wasn’t named correctly. All I had to do was to rename that connection to ClientVPN and bang, it started to work.
