    If I try to manually set up a VPN using Windows' built-in service, it just crashes and if I try and use my VPN provider's program it will not allow me to install the TAP adapter.

    I got my vpn provider working. Try this:
    1.uninstall all tap adapters in device manager>network adapters
    2.install openvpn with default options
    3.add string value/data ComponentId/tap0901 (REG_SZ) with regedit
    value name=ComponentId
    value data=tap0901
    to key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4d36e972-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}\[0001]
    where [0001] stands for the instance on your system in which you find the REG_SZ string with
    value name=ProductName
    value data=TAP-Windows Adapter V9
    4.disable and enable TAP-Windows Adapter V9 in device manager>network adapters to reinitialize the driver with the newly added ComponentId
    5.\[0001]\ may not be you vpn adapter, so check all the other \[000x] entries. Be aware it's fiddly. It took me a few attempts doing this to get it to work properly

    I upgraded to 10056 and got the computer to recognise the TAP V9 but adding the string didn't help.

    Painful on my end as well since we are not using ssl vpn. we are using a juniper srx 210. I WAS using a vm of windows 7 to vpn in to work but unfortunately hyper-v was borked with this release. Hopefully the next build will fix one or the other.
