This is the best open source VNC software that I have seen for Windows. The source code is very cleanly written and it compiles without problems on Visual Studio.
I hit an ugly corner case with Xvfb (via xvfb-run) which was causing some mission critical software of mine to core dump (due to a nasty XServer I/O error, which I didn't feel like tracing). Note, I'm not an expert on X internals. But, no worries... TightVNC to the rescue! Great job guys, thanks 1e6!
Easy to install and use.
