This really sucks. Can't get support for their command line switches to install. The manual just sucks. I am posting what I tried to do in a batch file because it does not work. After install the server runs as a service when I have it set to not be that way. Need silent install with it not running as a service and once you delete the startup service it does not hold the password. I did on twitter message about it and they told me to contact them on their support email and have not heard from them at all. Not even a acknowledgement of the email. Here is what I setup per their manual. msiexec /i tightvnc-2.5.2-setup-32bit.msi /quiet /norestart ADDLOCAL=Server SERVER_REGISTER_AS_SERVICE=0 SET_USEVNCAUTHENTICATION=1 VALUE_OF_USEVNCAUTHENTICATION=1 SET_PASSWORD=1 VALUE_OF_PASSWORD=password Once I start the server it has a red outline around it because did not hold the password.
too much security hazards, since the service does keep an open connection, although only secured connection allowed between the VNC processes, since the connection and port remains unchanged and constantly open, the workstation could be remote control using other methods not necessity related to tightVNC itself, in short- remain your computer wide open, even if you have a good firewall.
