Hi guys. I need help with getting TightVNC 1.3.9 running on my 64bit Vista.
During installation I choose full install and I tick the boxes which
registers TightVNC as a service and then run it.
The problem is that I don't get the icon in the system tray (where the
clock is). When I open up services.msc I see the VNC Server is up and
running, but I still can't connect to it, and I still don't see a tray
icon. No matter how many starts and restarts, it still doesn't show
The strange thing though is that if I start it from the start menu, it
starts up instantaneous. One thing I noticed is that if it's started
from the services.msc, it's started with a parameter -service. So I
tried to launch it manually by typing "C:\Program Files
(x86)\TightVNC\WinVNC.exe -service" and exactly nothing happens..
Well, the cursor changes to the loading cursor for a moment, then
nothing again. It doesn't even show up in the process tab of task
I've also tried with other parameters such as -settings and
-servicehelper, nothing happens. Therefore I figured the problem lies
in the ability to send parameters to it.
What am I supposed to do now? It's really lame to start TightVNC
through the start menu every time I log on to the computer.

Unfortunately, TightVNC cannot be used as a system service on Windows
Vista. This issue is under investigation, we'll try to fix it in future
With Best Wishes,
