    Hi all,

    Hopefully someone will be able to help me with this really finicky issue i sometimes get:
    (using win XP)
    Winvnc.exe is placed in the startup area but we need for it to start as a service so we can use it when it is needed. So we move the exe to c:\ so it's path is c:\winvnc.exe The problem is trying to get it to start as a service and it asks for a password.

    This is how we do it: open cmd, type cd\ to change it to root, type "winvnc -install", that registers it as a service, then use "net start winvnc" then it should prompt for a password to be entered but sometimes it doesn't. Any ideas on how this is caused so i can get it to prompt for a password?

    I thought one of the options of the VNC family of product was to install as a service on the host machine with passwords etc pre-configured. It is only when you try to connect a guest that you are asked for the password on the guest.
