Azure VPN install hangs on Windows 10


Tried to install Azure VPN client (x64) on Windows 10, but after double-clicking on the installer, Windows Explorer always froze and I had to restart explorer.exe to wake it up again.


Smart Screen is failing due to some reason. When double clicking on the VPN client (AMD64).exe, you can see CHXSmartScreen.exe process being starter. Kill that process and VPN client installation starts normally.

  2. The ping command analyses how long information takes to reach the server. In a Windows operating system, click on run to go to the DOS command box and type the word ping followed by your VPN's IP address and hit the enter button. https://novavpn.com/blog/popcorn-time/

  3. Yes, it's really simply to solve. Also you could do like here bestvpnrating.com and you won't worry about it again. But whitelist way is better in this case. Anyway don't forget about this resource
