The problem was in fact that the config file could not be located.  However, somehow the expected directory got messed up.  

I uninstalled OpenVPN and GUI, and removed the entire "C:\Program FIles\OpenVPN"

When I install OpenVPN again, it creates the correct directory structure.  However when I try to run the GUI it expects a different structure.

So my question is, where are these settings being stored so I can change them?

For example, instead of the GUI app looking for "C:\Program FIles\OpenVPN\config"
It's looking for "C:\Program FIles\OpenVPN\config\config"
and the openvpn.exe at "C:\Program FIles\OpenVPN\config\bin"
