TightVNC vs regular VNC

This is a problem for me, too.  A number of our machines I control through
VNC (Linux, Solaris, Win*).  For Windows, I still have some running ORL VNC
3.3.3r9, some running TightVNC release and some TightVNC Preview.  I would
like to upgrade them all to TightVNC preview or 1.2 when it comes out, but
short of using VNC to install another controller package, then using that to
upgrade VNC, then uninstalling it and switching back to VNC.

Anybody out there have any ideas on how to do an automatic update or even
manual like some other packages do?
