      I just updated from Wiresock 1.2.29 to 1.2.36, and I’m no longer able to connect using virtual adapter mode. Here are the logs:

      I have also tried installing Wiresock as a service and using WiresockUI, but I receive the same errors from each of those. I am running this from an elevated command prompt, as shown here:

      
      PS C:\Program Files\WireSock VPN Client\bin> $principal = new-object System.Security.Principal.WindowsPrincipal([System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity]::GetCurrent())
      PS C:\Program Files\WireSock VPN Client\bin> $principal.IsInRole([System.Security.Principal.WindowsBuiltInRole]::Administrator)
      True
      

      My config is very simple (of course these are not the real keys):

      
      [Interface]
      PrivateKey = xxxxxx
      Address = 100.124.23.52/32
      DNS = 10.255.255.3
      
      [Peer]
      PublicKey = xxxxxx
      AllowedIPs = 10.0.0.0/8, 100.64.0.0/10, 172.16.0.0/12
      Endpoint = xxxxxxxxxxxxxx.com:443
      PresharedKey = xxxxxx
      

      And the config works perfectly if I don’t use virtual adapter mode.

      What can I do to troubleshoot this? This is on a machine that’s running Windows 11 22H2, build 22621.2861.

      Thanks for this great project and for your help!

        I just downgraded to Wiresock 1.2.32 (the last version before the virtual adapter changes) and now everything is working perfectly. I did not make any other changes to my config – the only thing I did was downgrade the version of Wiresock.

          In version 1.2.36, the virtual network adapter driver received an update to meet ARM64 memory alignment standards. It seems that during the transition from version 1.2.32 to 1.2.36, this driver may not have been updated correctly. Typically, the recommended course of action in such instances is to fully uninstall the software, restart the system, and then carry out a clean reinstallation.

            Thanks! That makes sense. I will try that sometime in the next few days and I’ll let you know if I have any further problems.
