"installation of virtual network adapter device driver failed"

Post by georgeMoody » Sun Feb 28, 2021 8:39 am

hello, i'm trying to use the vpn client on my surface pro x but every time that i want to add a virtual network adapter, it goes up to about 25% but then it gives me this error:" installation of virtual adapter device driver failed" so i can't use the client at all. I'm guessing this happens because of my laptops hardware but I'm not sure. can anyone help me, please?

Surface Pro X is ARM based and Win x86 apps are emulated. You can not install a native x86 VPN driver on it.

Install Hyper-V first, then in it either x86 Windows or Linux. But in my opinion Linux SE client is rather painful to use. Linux SE server is actually fantastic.
