Installed TightVNC on a Vista and a xp computer and it works great. Since I
will be using several computers I went back and installed the winvnc service
on the Vista machine and there I had major problems. Winvnc would not run or
display an icon even after running the service helper. I started the server
in the vista machine and the viewer in the XP machine and found that I only
could get a mirror connection. Uninstalled on both machines, the XP machine
worked properly but the Vista machine did not un-register anything, I could
not stop the server so had to go into the registry and delete all
references, restart, delete the VNC directory, regedit the registry and
delete all references, restart and reinstall to get everything working
again. MY advice Do Not install winvnc server on a vista machine - but it
could just be my HP computer....
