I'd like to say this is not a common problem, but it is.  Most of the problems installing TAP are related to security software, Windows 10, or driver permissions.

 

Try this, it has worked for others with similar problem.

 

1.  Download this file and run it: https://swupdate.openvpn.org/community/releases/tap-windows-9.21.2.exe

2.  Choose the TAP Adapter, the SDK AND Utilities

3.  Go to C:\Program Files\TAP-WINdows\bin and run addtap.bat

Make sure before you try the above your remove any vpn software you have installed and also remove the failed tap driver from device manager.  Because it failed it will be under Other Devices, not Network Devices.  Uninstall it and also select remove driver.
