Hi,

I tried TigerVNC with : XP, Vista x86, Vista x64, 7 x86 and 7 x64.

Service mode works only with the very old XP. With Vista and 7, not.

Please, can you fix it ?

Thank you ;)

    Will probably be looking into this as part of an upcoming contract. Will keep you posted.

     
  • Could you please add a note to the "Windows-Specific" section of README.txt, to warn new users that the Windows service does not (yet) work in Windows 7 and Vista?

    Any news on the correction of this bug?

    This only bug forces me to deploy UltraVNC instead of TigerVNC (which I much prefer) in some enterprise networks I'm administrating.
    TigerVNC is the only Free software flavour of VNC with encryption support and a GNU/Linux version. It is a pity to loose it.

     
  • Now that the Windows service works, the note in README.txt should be deleted and this ticket can be closed.

    README.txt has now been updated.
