Hello, Possible issue with v2.18.x on Windows 8.1 regarding TAP drivers; I moved from v2.17.2 to v2.18.5. Upon first launch, EDDIE tried to install the new TAP drivers and I got a driver installation failure notice. I rebooted, and tried to launch again, EDDIE tried to install the TAP drivers again and failed again. I downloaded the TAP driver installer directly, noticing there are two versions. One labelled Win10 and one Win7. I noticed on the OpenVPN site it was stating to use the Win7 driver with Win8.1. I tried to install the Win10 driver to test, as EDDIE labels Win10/8.1/8 the same. I got the same error message when installing "tap-windows-9.23.3-I601-Win10" as I do when EDDIE tries to install them. I then uninstalled the TAP drivers and installed the Win7 version "tap-windows-9.23.3-I601-Win7". EDDIE now launches and sees the drivers and functions as normal. Perhaps with the new TAP builds, different versions are now required to be bundled with EDDIE for Win8.1/8 Hope that helps.
Bought and installed airvpn today, but can only make one connection. When trying to change the server airvpn can't connect any more and keeps flushing DNS. After a lot of research I found that reinstalling the tap-driver that comes with airvpn, gives a partial solution. I can again connect with the recommended server, but then again no reconnection or possibikity to change server to another country. When surfing the internet I did find this forum thread and I'm affraid that it represents my problem. http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows8_1-networking/problem-with-windows-tap-adapter-v9/ec1dd3b6-c756-4aef-b38d-d81aee42821d?auth=1 I hope someone has a better solution for me??
