I am talking with Andy Harter about VNC bug 19:
If there is a VNC connection active, then some VB ActiveX components may
Find the Use_Deferral registry key in the VNCHooks Advanced Settings for
the VB application affected and set it to 0.
I post my Email alsto to the list because I think it is useful, and also
other users can give their feedback.
Andy, we use many third party ActiveX.
Sometimes they give errors.
We haven't developed these ActiveX, and we haven't their source code.
So we cannot track down the error and say: well, this component doesn't
work because it fails to initialise correctly, and the culprit is VNC.
If VNC has this side-effect, VNC developers have to fix it.
Do you think all the software houses using VNC have to check all the used
components against VNC ?
And what about the end-users?
When an application doesn't work, do users have always to check if the
application fails because its bugs, Windows bugs, VNC side-effects or other
software interfering with ?
I think bug-tracking under Windows is already time wasting and annoying.
I.T. people already know, for example, the side-effects of antivirus
Don't make things worse when using VNC.
VNC is really "spice", but this behaviour can be its end.
Perhaps my assumption is wrong, VNC isn't a software for real production
environment, it is only a programmer team exercise, to use at home and at
What do you want to do about VNC in the future? We are talking about this.
Please excuse my bad English, I hope I explained my concerns.
