[Openvpn-users] "There are no TAP-Win32 adapters on this system..." error

I have installed OpenVPN v2.0 beta 15 on my Windows XP SP2 client. The install process completed successfully with no errors.

OpenVPN is set to start as a service, but it exits immediately. When I try to start manually by right clicking my *.ovpn config file I get the following error:

"There are no TAP-Win32 adapters on this system. You should be able to create a
TAP-Win32 adapter by going to Start -> All Programs -> OpenVPN -> Add a new TAP-
Win32 virtual ethernet adapter.
Sat Dec 04 18:50:41 2004 18: Exiting
Press any key to continue..."

I check ipconfig /all and the TAP-Win32 adapter shows up, as well as in my network connections dialogue with status of "Network Cable Unplugged"
(I have tried rebooting after install, and disabling and re-enabling with no change)

Excerpt from ipconfig /all:

"Ethernet adapter OpenVPN:

        Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected
        Description . . . . . . . . . . . : TAP-Win32 Adapter V8
        Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-FF-5F-A3-C1-6F

Any ideas what the issue is here?

Thanks in advance
