RiseupVPN for Windows
RiseupVPN is tested on Windows 10.
If you had a previous version installed, please try uninstall it first: click
uninstall.exe in the folder where the app was installed
c:\Program Files (x86)\RiseupVPN\uninstall.exe). Only recent
versions include the uninstaller.
Once you have saved the file, double click
RiseupVPN-win-latest.exe to install RiseupVPN.
RiseupVPN is built using a free software program called bitmask-vpn.
Step 1: Search to see if the bug has already been reported.
Step 3: Create a new bug report or feature request.
Please include the following information in your bug report:
- Steps to reproduce the bug
- What is the expected behaviour and what do you see
- A screenshot if is something visual
- Your windows version
- The logs of the program
There are three log files each for a different component of the client:
- The systray log:
- The openvpn process:
C:\Program Files (x86)\RiseupVPN\openvp.log
When reporting a bug it is very useful to include the log files.
We believe there is no DNS or IP leaks in RiseupVPN on windows, but it is not battle tested. Unlike Mac or linux, there is no killswitch on windows.
If you find any kind of leaks we are very interested in hearing about it.
RiseupVPN’s clients are based on the open source software Bitmask. The code for the Windows client can be found here.
