Fail to install OpenVPN silent on Windows 7

Reported by: ulfper Owned by: Samuli Seppänen
Priority: major Milestone: release 2.5.4
Component: Generic / unclassified Version: OpenVPN 2.4.7 (Community Ed)
Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords: Installation certificates silent
Cc: tct, stipa


We try to install OpenVPN 2.4.7 silent, but the TAP driver installation pop up a confirmation dialogue (trust OpenVPN Inc). We have tried to pre-load certificates to avoid this confirmation dialogue without luck. Which certificates should be pre-loaded and to which "section" in the "certificate store"?
Or is there another way to install OpenVPN silent?

Is this something that the .msi installer does better for 2.5?

If not, we maybe should try to fix this for 2.5.3

Fixing for 2.4.x is unlikely, as we're a bit short on manpower to invest into NSIS installers.

I say we just close this. It looks like a local problem - if it was not, many people would have commented in here. Plus this is 2.4.7 (soon EOL) and Windows 7 (already EOL).

If you disagree please reopen.

I think we should at least test if 2.5 / .msi supports proper silent mode, including installation of all drivers contained. This is important for proper software maintenance with automatic rollout and updates.

Since we do fully automated testing of the MSI installer now, we definitely have fixed this
