Only the 2.1-xx version of OpenVPN supports topoloty subnet AFAIK so you 
only have two options

a) Don't use topology subnet
b) Tell your client to use 2.1 instead.

Even though I havn't created any installation packages with 2.1 and my GUI 
you can easily install OpenVPN 2.1 with James installation package and 
then simply download the OpenVPN GUI binary and use it together with 
OpenVPN 2.1.

Or, if you prefer to only run installation packages, begin with installing 
my OpenVPN-GUI installation package with OpenVPN 2.0.7, then run the 
OpenVPN 2.1-xx installation package to overwrite the OpenVPN installation.
