Weird.  You have to be careful when using the InstallShield stuff, that
WinVNC isn't currently running, otherwise it'll ask you to reboot.

I think so.  It appears that 3.51 doesn't support the required access

screen saver and logon prompt desktops tend to cause problems.  This is
why I haven't spent more time trying to fix the Ctrl-Alt-Del problem on
