Hamachi network adapter not displayed in Network Connections

Sometimes Windows fails to properly "fully" add the network adapter when told to install it. This can manifest itself in a scenario where there is no Hamachi adapter listed in the Network connections folder. Editing the following in the registry may help revert that issue.

  1. Search under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet###\Control\Class\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002bE10318} for "Hamachi"
  2. You should find on a 4-digit key that has ProductName="Hamachi Network Interface"
  3. Take note of the NetCfgInstanceId (big hex UID)
  4. Next go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\<NetCfgInstanceId>\Connection
  5. Create a String named "Name" with the value "Hamachi"
  6. Start Hamachi
