Hello!

It's a bug in the OpenVPN GUI installer. Run the OpenVPN GUI with full administrator privileges (i.e. not as a user in the admin group, it will not have same effect if you have UAC enabled) and it will be able to create the key. Please see here for the bug-fix advancement state:

Running it with full admin privileges worked like a charm. Thanks
