If you have tried to install the IP Vanish software on your Windows 7 Pro machine and run into problems with the TAP driver, I have a solution for you.
When I installed the main software, then tried to connect after logging in, the software
realised I needed a TAP driver installed. Up then popped a dialog and I clicked the install button – so far so good. Or not!
I was informed that the driver was not signed and needed to be for this version of Windows but sadly, no matter what I tried, I just couldn’t get the thing to install.
Solving this problem happened after I noticed that the software mentioned OpenVPN.
Firstly, go to this site at the OpenVPN website:
Then download the latest version of the software. Right now, that’s this
(https://swupdate.openvpn.org/community/releases/openvpn-install-2.4.0-I602.exe) link, but do check the site directly.
When you run this as an adminstrator, untick all the items except the TAP driver – we only need that part to fix our IP Vanish problem.
Once installed, reboot your PC and you should be good to go.
