win98 user properties on startup bug?
Mon Jul 14 16:33:00 2003
More regarding the unwelcome properties dialog...
The reg file was exported from the registry from an installed and
of vnc -- that is, a default password has been set. Running vnc from the
or from running startvnc.bat manually both work as expected. The problem
when running the login script.
Setting AllowProperties=0 brings up an error dialog saying (more or less)
can only be configured by admin. Different values for the other entries in
file have also been tried, but no success. I also tried applying the reg
once, instead of at each login.
I'm assuming then that vnc is still asking for a password (or maybe
is being requested -- like what?)
Developers: this is a design issue -- please clarify -- displaying the
box is NOT the same as asking for a password!
So what is causing w98 -- but not xp -- to do this???

Thanks for giving this your attention,
