If i try to connect using the gui (right click ->connect) everything
works fine.
If i try to connect from the services mmc (right click in "OpenVPN
Service" and start" then in the log i get the error:

Could it be the service is running as SYSTEM instead of your account, and you have inserted the cert into your accounts profile instead of the OS "profile"?

When it comes to OS-level certs, you can't use IE as the cert import tool. You have to use MMCs "cert mgr" add-on - then the certs are available to services
