Hi all

Im running a win10 (1903), i have had Viscosity since 2016 and i have never had any problems with it untill this last upgrade from 1.7.16 to 1.8

Hi PappaNiklas,

It looks like you're using OpenVPN 2.3 for some reason. Please open Viscosity Preferences, go to Advanced and check OpenVPN Version is set to Automatic or 2.4. If it is already set to Automatic, you may have a legacy command that Viscosity is dropping back to OpenVPN 2.3 for, if this is the case, set OpenVPN Version to 2.4 for the time being.

If OpenVPN Version was set to Automatic, we'd recommend contacting your VPN Provider for an updated configuration - https://sparklabs.com/support/kb/article/how-do-i-find-out-who-my-vpn-provider-is/

Regards,

It was set hard on 2.3, changed it to Automatic, and now it works
You are the best

Thanks
