The client conf and all certs can go in one directory under

(32-bit Windows) C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\config\

(64-bit Windows) C:\Program Files(x86)\OpenVPN\config\


This is a very frustrating process but I think I'm getting there. The files I 
created on the FreeBSD server which I copied over are:


But the windows setup appears that it wants one of these files to be called 
client.ovpn. Of course I can't give all of them that name so I'm stumped again.
