  1. Why Does Windows 10 Not Natively Support OpenVPN?


    In Settings > Network & Internet > VPN, we can hit the plus sign to add a VPN connection. Yet, under the VPN Type drop down, OpenVPN is not an option. Does anyone have any idea why Microsoft doesn't natively support OpenVPN? Of course, it's not just Microsoft. Google does the same thing in Android under Settings > Network & Internet > VPN.

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community forum.



    • Were there any changes made on the PC prior to this issue?


    I suggest you to follow the troubleshooting steps listed in
    troubleshoot Windows 10 hangs or freezes and check
    if it works.



    Note: Article holds good for Windows 10.



    You may also place the PC on a
    clean boot state
    and check if it works fine. Reset the computer to start normally after troubleshooting. Refer

    clean boot state
    for the same.



    Note:

    A ‘Clean boot’ starts Windows with a minimal set of drivers and startup programs, so that you can determine whether a background program is interfering with your game or program.



    Your computer may temporarily lose some functionality while in a clean boot environment, however that functionality will return when you
    reset the computer to start normally after you have finished your troubleshooting.





    If the issue persists, get in touch with the
    OpenVPN support for further help.



    Regards,

    Why Does Windows 10 Not Natively Support OpenVPN?

    OpenVPN Provider for Windows 10

    From the Windows 10 VPN configuration screen the first option is to select a VPN Provider. The only option is Windows (built in). This tells me that Window allows or plan to allow third party VPN providers (and protocols?) that are not supported natively.

    Is it possible to install a third party VPN provider? If there is can someone point me in the direction of an SDK for VPN Providers? The end goal is to add OpenVPN support to Windows 10 from the Windows 10 VPN configuration screen.
