HOW TO ASSIGN OPENVPN the essential RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR RIGHTS on WINDOWS 7
OpenVPN needs administrator rights everytime it runs – so that Windows 7 can add the routes for you. It’s boring clicking “Run as Administrator”, so lets automate it for you – which takes 30 seconds to do.
1. Install OpenVPN.
2. Start > all programs > OpenVPN
3. Right click on OpenVPN > go to the LAST item called PROPERTIES
4. Compatabilty tab (third tab over)
5. At the bottom see “Privilege Level” > Tick the check box = Run this program as administrator > change setting for all users
There is a security tab… (fourth tab over)
Find your ID = full control.
That should enable OpenVPN to run with admin privileges that it needs.
