win98 user properties on startup bug? (yes, i think it's a bug)
This is proving to be a right pain... I've tried this with
tightvnc-1.2.8_x86 and UltraVNC-107-Win32 - same result:
Current User Properties dialog at login, Click OK (with or without
entering the password), and VNC fails to start -- every time on Win98
(Bad), never on XP (Better)...
When a user logs in, a login script runs which calls the following batch
file. Why doesn't this work?
:startvnc.bat - called when user logs in
regedit /s g:\vnc.reg
start g:\tightvnc\winvnc.exe -kill -run
g:\vnc.reg looks like:
I've placed the above keys in the _only_ places thay should go --
according to http://www.uk.research.att.com/vnc/winvnc.html -- to quote:
"1.Local machine-specific settings. Options specified here are not
2.Local default user settings. Location:
3.Local per-user settings. These override the local default user
settings. If there is no current user, the username SYSTEM will be used.
4.Global per-user settings. These are only read if AllowProperties has
not been set to zero (see below) Location:
Most options can only be specified in a subset of these places, as
specified in each option's description below..."
I understand this is a common problem -- but I can't find the solution --
Thanks for giving this your attention,
