The problems you describe are not a bug in determining whether WinVNC is
running as an application or as a service, but in determinign whether or
not there is a user currently logged on. This is achieved by checking
whether the current user name is null - if there is a user logged in
then the tray icon and UI are displayed.
When running as an application, it obviously makes sense for the tray
icon always to be displayed, even if the current user cannot be
established. Expect a fix for that in the next release!
