WinVNC- Not Listening

I have a peculiar problem. I cannot set WinVNC Server to accept socket
connection. No matter how many times I've ticked it on. It automatically
reverts back to the off state once I reopen the Properties page again.
The greyed-out display number box has "98" written in it. This can be
changed (to 1 for example), however reinstallation of VNC reverts the
setting back to 98. All other parameters can be changed successfully.
Here's what i have tried so far.
- Reinstalled WinVNC (Version 3.3.3R9 and 3.3.5)
- Deleted Program directory AND Registry Settings (deleting every
references to ORL or WinVNC)
- Manually edited the SocketConnect Registry Key.
- Rebuilt the tcp/ip stack...
- all this x100
Sounds like WinVNC can't get a socket to listen on, for some reason.
Can you run WinVNC with the DebugMode and DebugLevel registry settings
configured, so that you get some debugging output (and probably some
error messages) out?
