We're bundling a tap-windows6 driver (9.21.3) with OpenVPN 2.4.6 that is
due later this week:


The main difference to the old driver (9.21.2) is that the driver and
installer have only a SHA2 Authenticode signature[*]. This means that
Windows Vista should refuse to install the driver. Some outdated Windows
7 installations might behave the same. This is intentional on our part,
as Vista is EOL and we don't want to support Windows 7 installations
that are horribly outdated.

I've tested installing this driver on Windows 7 Pro (64-bit) and Windows
2012r2 (64-bit) and I did not encounter any installation issues.
However, I do not have access to Windows 8 or Windows 10, nor to 32-bit

I would appreciate somebody could do additional driver installation
tests. This would help build confidence in the driver before we push it
out. Verifying that the driver installs fine is enough.

[*] The earlier driver has SHA1 as the primary signature and SHA2 as
secondary signature.
