The tooltip issue is a known one under XP and will be fixed in the next
Animated cursors are deliberately disabled because they would chew
bandwidth and are usually just eye-candy.

I have just installed WinVNC Server 3.3.7 onto a Windows XP
box and WinVNC Viewer 3.3.7 onto a Windows 98 box and
have encountered a minor problem.
Tooltips do not appear on the remote display (although they
do appear on the local display). Tooltips are normally very
useful as they can provide information without having to
navigate through other dialog boxes and so I was hoping that
there is a way to make these work.
I have tried changing the VNCServer Update handling settings
from "Poll Foreground Window" to "Poll Full Screen" but this
has no affect on the appearance of tooltips.
As a possibly related (though not so important issue) my
animated cursor does not animate on the remote display
Has anyone else encountered this issue and is there
