Open-VPN on Windows Vista

Because I got a new laptop (Notebook Toshiba Satellite A100-599 Centrino Duo T7200, 2.0GHz, 1GB, 160GB, VISTA) with Windows Vista preinstalled, and I needed to use Open-VPN, I started searching for some info about how to use it. Download and install: Open-VPN GUI. Put your configs to C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\config. Add:
route-method exe
route-delay 2
to your *.ovpn file (client.ovpn) Run as Administrator (right click) C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\bin\openvpn-gui.exe. (If you don't run it with admin privileges, the TAP adapter won't work) And that's it..
