The official way is to add the user to the designated group which by
default is expected to be named "OpenVPN Administrators". Recursive group
membership will work, so you could create a group named, say, "eduVPN
Users" or just use "Users" and add that to "OpenVPN Administrators" group
at install time (and remove it on uninstall). Personally I would avoid
tweaking permissions of a folder inside "Program Files\OpenVPN\config\"
