Sure you can (in Windows)...
1. Run Server Manager and stop the VNC service on the remote machine.
2. Map a drive to the location where the VNC programs are installed on the
remote machine.
3. Copy the the TightVNC files over the original VNC files on the remote
machine.
4. Re-start the VNC service (using Server Manager).
You should now be able to connect using VNC!

Let me know if I'm missing something...
