Description

Hi, the certificate for the tap installer expired 02.09.2016.

On tap installation I'm asked by Windows if I always want to trust software from openvpn technologies. If i check "yes" , a certificate by openvpn is installed in windows trusted vendors certificate store.
However, this certificate is still sha1, and expired 02.09.2016. Right click on the tapinstall.exe and selecting Properties->"Digital Signatures" also shows this.
Most windows systems do not care about this however, but its still ugly. It fails on windows system that have additional group policies or security software that prevents expired certificates.

Regards
Lars
