#396 closed Bug / Defect (fixed)

Windows installer happily installs 64bit version on 32bit windows

Reported by: cron2 Owned by: samuli
Priority: major Milestone: release 2.3.4
Component: Packaging Version: OpenVPN 2.3.3 (Community Ed)
Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords: installer

Description

Well, I'm obviously a good candidate for the "foolproofness" of our installers, and it is very much not foolproof...

If you install the x86_64 installer on a 32bit windows, it will just do so, without any warning or error. Only when trying to actually start the installed openvpn-gui.exe, it will tell you "wrong version! can't run!".

Please fix :-)
