For both Template and AppVM's it's easy enough to backup and restore the entire
thing as needed using the built-in tools from Qubes Manager, Qmenu or command
line. Anything goes wrong, just restore a backup.
But for dom0, all that seems to get backed up is the /home directory, meaning

Just reviving a thread of mine from a few months ago with a related follow-up
When trying to connect to a VPN using openvpn from a Debian-9 AppVM within
Qubes, I could connect but instantly lost DNS resolution which rendered the

Further update: I decided to try a completely different VPN provider's config
file, and to my surprise that one worked fine using the old simple method of
calling openvpn from the AppVM.
Examining both files and looking for the difference between the two, it appears

I realize it's possible to create a dedicated ProxyVM and use NetworkConfig to
route VPN traffic, but that's not what I'm asking about.
In Qubes 3.2 from any standard Debian AppVM connected to Sys-Net I am able to
simply do from terminal:
sudo openvpn --config

Here's what I've done so far:
Created a new Windows 7 SP1 HVM by using an .iso as I've done many times
successfully in the past on Qubes 3.2. Everything works fine, HVM is created
and runs correctly, internet connection is intact and functioning as expected.
Downloaded Qubes Windows Tools 4.0

I ended up trying:

suggested syntax a try as well, and imagine it will succeed also.

Previously when creating a new Windows HVM on Qubes 3.2, to boot from a

When I try that in Qubes 4.0, I get an error that starts with "Traceback" and

Whenever attempting to launch an app in a DVM, the result is always the same.
The popup message comes up saying "Disp1234 has started", and then nothing
happens. Then about two minutes later, another popup says "Disp1234 has

A while back I used an extremely simple fix for a similar issue, which may or
may not work in this specific situation described.
In my case I had assigned a network card/controller to the Sys-Net VM, which
Qubes hated so much compatibility-wise that it subsequently refused to boot
I recently did a fresh install of Qubes R3.2, and then proceeded to restore
several VM's from my previous installation, among them a Windows 7 HVM. I also
installed qubes-windows-tools, which I also previously had installed.
As a result of that restore/install, xfce has placed about 50

As one approach, is there any command that will force a re-download and
re-install of ALL dom0 packages and components, despite cache showing them as
already up to date? If one or more elements are broken or corrupted, a refresh
update might do the trick.
Similar to if I'd made a dom0 backup

Thanks Andrew. I was able to use the instructions on that linked page to fix

With a Windows 7 HVM, initially upon creation it is a fixed small window size

installing Qubes Windows Tools, both of these limitations are removed. One
