Samuli,
I tested the 64 bit installer on Windows 7 Enterprise using default settings. 
It ran smoothly. I notice that now there are 3 services - OpenVPN Interactive 
Service (appears started automatic)
- OpenVPN Legacy Service (manual)
- OpenVPNService (manual)

 Any pointers to documentation about this?
I use OpenVPN-MI-GUI. I had to start OpenVPNService to connect to my server. 
Other than that, it worked fine.

Regards,Jose

 Subject: [Openvpn-users] Help testing OpenVPN 2.4-alpha1 preview installers?
   
Hi all,

We're really close to OpenVPN 2.4-alpha1 release now. In yesterday's IRC 
meeting[1] we deemed that "late this week" might be doable.

However, we'd need to help with testing these preview installers:

<http://build.openvpn.net/downloads/temp/openvpn-install-2.3_git-do-ifconfig-after-tun-v2-I601-i686.exe>
<http://build.openvpn.net/downloads/temp/openvpn-install-2.3_git-do-ifconfig-after-tun-v2-I601-x86_64.exe>

Note that the installers contain a much improved OpenVPN-GUI that 
behaves differently under the hood from the one bundled in OpenVPN 2.3.x:

<https://github.com/OpenVPN/openvpn-gui>

The installer also contains a new, much improved Windows system service 
called openvpnserv2:

<https://github.com/OpenVPN/openvpnserv2>

Based on earlier tests openvpnserv2 should be able to handle 
suspend/resume gracefully. It should also automatically restart a 
connection that dies for whatever reason.

So far the installers linked to above have passed some basic tests:

<https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/wiki/OpenVPN24WindowsTests>

If you can, please test the installers in your environment and let us 
know how it went: we'd like to minimize the chance of breaking existing 
setups before we make the official 2.4-alpha1 release.
