just tried it on a 32bit Windows XP SP3 machine. Installation went OK,
the README works but the format of the README file itself does not
display properly in Notepad (CR/LF problem?).
The bad news is that the binaries don't work. All binaries refuse to
start (openvpn.exe, openssl.exe, openvpn-gui.exe). The command-line
tools fail with 'Cannot execute the specified program'. The OpenVPN GUI
fails with an error 0xC0150002.
I have not tested whether the TAP-Win32 driver works.
share and enjoy,
