  1. Tap windows adapter not working anymire and impossible to update


    Hi guys, Suddenly (it worked last saturday) my vpn (private vpn) is not working anymore. The problem is related to the tap-windows adapter that stopped working. It has a yellow triangle on it in devices manager. I tried to unistall it, update drivers, troubleshooting... Nothing seems to work. Anyone has similar issue? I tried looking on internet but i didn't find any solution working till now

  2. Uninstall TAP Windows Adapter V9

    SOLVED

    • Step 1: Download OpenVPN and install with ALL features from HERE : Community Downloads | OpenVPN
    • Step 2: Open CMD.exe as administrator and go to the file location of "C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\bin" or whatever that turns out to be.
    • Step 3: Follow the "Installing and uninstalling TAP-drivers" section from the website

      HERE
      : ManagingWindowsTAPDrivers – OpenVPN Community
    • OR JUST READ BELOW
    • Step 4: How to get the <id> for the next section:
      • Go to Network Connections
      • Right click the TAP device you want to remove
      • Click Properties
      • Click Details
      • Using the drop-down menu, get the Hardware ID
        • This is usually something like: tapoes, tap0901 etc
    • Step 5: Remove those suckers by typing the following into CMD: tapinstall.exe remove (ID from step 4)
      • it should look something like this below:
    • Step 6: If you have devices that were not removed, repeat Steps 4-5 for all TAP adapters
    • Step 7: Restart!
    • Step 8: Uninstall OpenVPN and you're all set!

    Supplementary information from the site:

    Occasionally you may need play with different TAP-driver versions. In this case you can use devcon.exe from the Windows command-prompt. Below are some common commands you can run from an administrator Powershell
    or cmd.exe console:

    List available TAP-Windows adapters:

    List network interfaces (incl. TAP-Windows adapters):

    View information about an installed driver:

    Uninstall a TAP-driver:

    To verify TAP-driver removal:

    Install a new TAP-driver:

    Update a TAP-driver:

    Notes:

    • <id> refers to the driver identifier which is tap0901 for OpenVPN 2.2+, but may be different in older/newer OpenVPN versions.
    • <something.inf> is typically OemWin2k.inf (old tap-drivers) or OemVista.inf (newer tap-drivers). You need to specify the full path to this file, e.g.C:\Program Files\TAP-Windows\driver\OemVista.inf.
    By installing multiple times, you will create additional TAP-Windows adapter instances, which can be used for multiple concurrent VPN tunnels. It is also possible to install using Control Panel -> Add New Hardware,
    and it is possible to uninstall using Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager.
