Portable OpenVPN 2.2.2

Go to link download and install: OpenVPNPortable_1.6.6.paf.exe

This includes OpenVPN 2.1.1 and works great.

Go to link and download: openvpn-2.2.2-install.exe

Using 7Zip, extracted the 2.2.2 installer to a folder (some files for x86/x64 will overwrite - this is ok, we aren't using these.)

Copy the following files from unzipped folder:

12/15/2011  12:29 PM         1,098,240 libeay32.dll
12/15/2011  12:29 PM            63,488 libpkcs11-helper-1.dll
12/11/2009  06:48 PM            97,280 libssl32.dll
12/15/2011  12:29 PM            90,112 lzo2.dll
12/15/2011  12:29 PM           372,224 openssl.exe
12/15/2011  12:29 PM           510,464 openvpn.exe
12/15/2011  12:29 PM            14,848 openvpnserv.exe
12/15/2011  12:29 PM           237,568 ssleay32.dll
               8 File(s)      2,484,224 bytes

to...

P:\PortableApps\OpenVPNPortable\app\bin\libeay32.dll
P:\PortableApps\OpenVPNPortable\app\bin\libpkcs11-helper-1.dll
P:\PortableApps\OpenVPNPortable\app\bin\libssl32.dll
P:\PortableApps\OpenVPNPortable\app\bin\lzo2.dll
P:\PortableApps\OpenVPNPortable\app\bin\openssl.exe
P:\PortableApps\OpenVPNPortable\app\bin\openvpn.exe
P:\PortableApps\OpenVPNPortable\app\bin\openvpnserv.exe
P:\PortableApps\OpenVPNPortable\app\bin\ssleay32.dll

(assuming portable drive is "P:" - overwrite 6 of the 8 files)

Now when running "OpenVPNPortable.exe", you will see 2.2.2 in lieu of 2.1.1

Tested on Win7 Ultimate & WinXP Pro

Hmm

Ok, used the link provided to get OpenVPNPortable_1.6.6.paf.exe, then used the link provided to get openvpn-2.2.2-install.exe and extracted that. Replaced the files suggested noticing that libssl32.dll is not included in openvpn-2.2.2-install.exe, so I had to use the original. I got the following error message:

You need at least one *.ovpn file on C:\Portable\PortableApps\OpenVPNPortable\data\config\ for a working VPN. Please check your configuration

So I deleted OpenVPNPortable from my PortableApps directory and reinstalled OpenVPNPortable_1.6.6.paf.exe. Wouldn't you know it, I got the same error.

I was going to do this then run PA.com's Installer to get a current PA Install, to copy to my Dropbox, to share with anyone that wanted it. What am I doing wrong? Anyone know??? If I can get this working, I will be posting a link to the update version here.

probably nothing

you need some config file for your connection to your destination server, otherwise things like open vpn do not work.

So...

So, if I packaged it using PA's Installer, it should work for someone else?

no

what you need is config file for it to work.

For that you will need to consult the manual of open vpn and how to create an config file for a particular connection.
Then it should work.

Still errors.

Do you have a release plan for a version 2.xx?

drivers

some notes:

On my system I need to use the drivers delivered by the portable app because there are no tap drivers installed. If i use the original ones included in the portable app, i get an error claiming that the drivers are too old. (9.6

libssl32.dll not found

I have unzipped openvpn-2.2.2-install.exe as instructed. The bin folder does not contain libssl32.dll. Is this an issue?
