: Sorry, but when I open the .VNC file (using open with...) with
VNCViewer, it
: gives me an error message.

 How do I auto-register VNC?  Typing
: "vncviewer -register" in the run command does nothing.  And, I don't
know
: how to find the config switch, whatever that is.

(1) I was incorrect about opening the file directly using "Open With".
When you run "vncviewer -register", on a lsower machine you will see a
box pop up momentarily then disappear; on a fast one, you may never see
the box.

However, after running it with the "-register" switch, you should be
able to double-click on a .VNC file and have it automatically open.  Try
running  "vncviewer -register" once again, then go and doubleclick a
.VNC file.

(2) As for using the config switch, I meant from a command line.  If you
aren't comfortable with it, this could be painful to try. In other
words, something like this:

vncviewer -config myfile.vnc


When you type the command line, make sure you are either in the
directory with vncviewr and the .vnc file or give the full path to both;
if there are spaces in the path names, you need to surround them with
quotes.  For example, if you left VNCViewer in the standard ORL folder
and saved the .VNC file to "My Documents" on the root of the C drive
with the name "somepc.vnc", it would be something like this.

"C:\Program Files\ORL\VNC\vncviewer" -config "C:\My
Documents\somepc.vnc".

If (1) does not work, please post whatever error it gives you and what
version of Windows you are using; something may have gotten bollixed up
in what VNCViewer calls to do registration.

: Hehe, you gave me three ways of doing things, and I couldn't get one.
Could
: you give me a little more help?
