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.
I cannot run airvpn on 8.1. It will install but not run. On opening the program I get a message saying ' this app can't run on your pc. to find a version for your pc, check with the software publisher'
Hello. I recently purchased subscription to AirVPN services, and thanks to the documentation and the forum, I’ve managed to get the Eddie client (version 2.10.3) running quite well on my Windows 8.1 x64 laptop. My only problem is with the Network Lock function. I always use Network Lock. My one and only firewall is the embedded Windows Firewall. But it appears that Network Lock replace my firewall rules, even if they’re saved and ready to be set back if the Network Lock function is stopped. It is said that this replacement is done « beyond the scene », so that the rules don't seem changed when they actually are. So what if I have firewall rules that I need/want to keep active everytime I connect to the internet ? Could it be possible to merge the Network Lock firewall rules with my own firewall rules ? Great hope that there is a solution.
