   The PCs I'm putting it on are all Win95, if that makes a difference.
When I first install WinVNC as a service (using "winvnc -install") an icon
appears in the tray. After I reboot, however, the icon goes away and
doesn't come back.
   I have no complaints about this... I don't want it changed (I hope
you're listening, ORL)! As a Network Manager trying to remotely support a
lot of novice users, it's far more convenient for me to not have that icon
show up. It greatly decreases the odds of my users shutting the program
down on reconfiguring it.
