Prebuild OpenVPN 2.1.1 Package

Tested with Win XP and Win7 32/64, think Vista will work.<br /> <br /> Download and install NSIS 2.46<br /> Download and install 7zip<br /> Download and unzip openvpn-2.1.1._prebuild4noinc.7z File:Openvpn-2.1.1. prebuild4noinc.7z<br /> <br /> Jump into the extracted openvpn-2.1.1 folder.<br /> I have moved the compiled binary's from the community OpenVPN 2.1.1 project and put a selfcompiled openvpn.exe with the enabled option '--enable-password-save' into bin.<br /> OpenVPN now can read username / password from file.<br /> <br /> Edit your config and certificate in config<br /> <br /> Edit the install README and License in text<br /> <br /> Jump into install-WIN32 and edit the openvpn.nsi if you want to rename some configs, howto or binary's. Search for the 'noinc' strings.<br /> <br /> If you made no mistakes you can compile the install-win32\openvpn.nsi with a right click of your mouse on it and choose 'compile NSIS Script'. You will find your install.exe in the rootdir of openvpn-2.1.1 .<br /> <br /> Regards, Eike Lohmann<br />

I cleaned up the above descriptions and corrected the directory name which is created when extracting openvpn from the listed file.<BR><BR> To do this on Linux is exactly the same, except for the types of slashes in the file names. <BR><BR> I would suggest that you edit the openvpn.nsi file and remove the lines which reference the 'noinc' strings to avoid any problems with unusable configs being included and installed.
