Installing OpenVPN-GUI (openvpn-2.0.9-gui-1.0.3-install.exe in my case) on Windows 7 Pro 32Bit  works as usual by running the setup process.

Although the connection will be established you won’t have any routes.

  1. Download setacl from
  2. run setacl -on openvpnservice -ot srv -actn ace -ace “n:Benutzer;p:start_stop”
  3. by going to Computer/right click/maintenance/user and groups add the desired user to the group Networkconfiguration-Operators (Netwerkkonfigurations-Operatoren)
  4. in the .ovpn configuration file add the lines
    route-method exe
    route-delay 2
  5. disable the service openvpngui via msconfig
  6. change the startlink for OpenVPN-GUI to be run as Administratior
