Cool beans!  Thanks.  Does this bring up the "WinVNC is running as a service" dialog?

The following trick prevents the VNCserver icon from appearing in the tray:

1.-Add WinVNC.exe to the StartUp folder.
2.-Edit the shortcut by adding at the end of path "-service"
    (my setup looks like this: "C:\Program Files\ORL\VNC\WinVNC.exe" -service)

3.-Voila...winserver works as a service, and it hidden from the tray.

It works the same for WinNT and Win95.
