Did you need --enable-password-save on the server?

What password are you having in a file there?

But I can't use "auth-user-pass filename" after upgrade.

I assume you mean on the Windows client now, right?

How can I use "auth-user-pass filename"?

You would have to rebuild OpenVPN on Windows with the --enable-password-save option.

In my case, OpenVPN reconnect very often, so reconnection automatically is very important for me without typing username/password...

You can use the --persist-key option on the client. This will cause OpenVPN to cache the password during ping-restarts.

You can also change the following reg-value to "0". That will cause
OpenVPN GUI not to terminate OpenVPN when you put a computer in hibernate


Now you would only be queried for user auth creds when you have manually
disconnected and want to connect again.
