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.
