Why use batch scripts, when we can put it all into one installer exe, that
can be remotely updated WITHOUT connecting to the users windows machine?
The batch script WILL need active DNS or the correct IP, and has NOT option
to update something...
For those that know how to handle NSI files (nullsoft installer) i got some
want the script, or see what it can do for you? Just ask
Limits: At least ONE fixed web-server should be used for downloading updates
from the clients.
If none is available, i have some webspace left for it. for free (limit: 3
- Maybe i can get the scripts to run from my webserver,
so that you can enter the IP or DNS that should be used,
and download the .exe from the site.
When it works, download from http://ntp.zapto.org/vnc-one/make.htm
(this URL won't work right now)
- These scripts are NOT for regular use!
if you need that, install vnc as service!
- Most firewall's will let this one pass,
and windows will not complain about downloaded files.
- Tested with windows 95, 95, Xppro and XPhome

Hi, i read your post about wanting a simple way to help people, try a batch
script. you can have it run the install and and connect ot a host
automatically. You can even create another one to for the future to just
The TightVNC installer can work in silent mode and not ask questions during
installation (but it's possible that it might show message boxes if there
are any errors). In this mode TightVNC will be installed into the default
directory, that is, the TightVNC subdirectory in the Program Files). Here is
the command line to install TightVNC in silent mode:
tightvnc-1.2.9-setup.exe /sp- /verysilent
Tells a running copy of WinVNC to initiate an outgoing connection to a
listening viewer running on the specified machine. This is the equivalent of
the 'Add New Client' menu option. You can put multiple -connect options on
one command line to connect to multiple viewers at once. If no host name is
specified then the Add New Client dialog will be displayed.
TightVNC is my favorite version but the RealVNC stuff is compatible with
TIght. I don't know about the other way around
If you want me to write up a batch script and test it just email me back
