That should still create a log file. in c:\openvpn\logs or somesuch.

It could quite possibly be interesting to know what last few lines from
the logs look like when this happens, in a high (debugging) verbosity
mode if necessary.

The management interface is one mechanism you could try to remotely
twiddle the verbosity level, retrieve logs, and/or trigger the server to
restart. Of course, you'll need an alternate, secure way to get to it
remotely (ssh?) if you don't have direct access to the server.

Interesting. I haven't observed this, and haven't had it reported by any
of my Windows-based users.
