In some cases, you might still have issues reinstalling the application as some of the files and registry entries are not fully removed from the system.

To be sure, you can manually remove them by following the steps below:

1) Delete the OpenVPN folder from the installed directory. By default, the OpenVPN application will be installed under this folder:

32bit systems -  C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\

64bit systems -  C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenVPN\

2) Download the OpenVPN registry removal script here:
