Prebuild OpenVPN 2.1.1 Package

Tested with Win XP and Win7 32/64, think Vista will work.

Download and install NSIS 2.46
Download and install 7zip
Download and unzip openvpn-2.1.1._prebuild4noinc.7z File:Openvpn-2.1.1. prebuild4noinc.7z

Jump into the extracted openvpn-2.1.1._prebuild4noinc\ folder.
Into bin\ 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'.
OpenVPN now can read username / password from file.

Edit your config and certificate in config\

Edit the install README and License in text\

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.

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._prebuild4noinc\ .
