    I wanted to get the last version of OpenVPN for Windows XP working with my VPN provider. I installed OpenVPN 2.3.18-1001 and downloaded the .ovpn files from my VPN service. The .ovpn files however did not work with the old version of OpenVPN, so I modified them to work:

    1) Removed the line 'compress'
    2) Added the line 'comp-lzo'
    3) Removed the entire section of '<crl-verify>...</crl-verify>

    To better show this, I have attached the original .ovpn file my provider has (old.ovpn) and the one that I modified to work in XP (new.ovpn)
