Yes, it is running as a service. The main difference is that for some
reason, when executed while the desktop is locked, no action seems to take
place with version 4.0 (vnc4.exe) as opposed to the version 3.3.7
When I go back to 3.3.7, it works, however, I run into another limitation
which is that I can't specify an alternate port for the host like this:
winvnc.exe -connect 10.0.0.5:5900
I get an error that it can't understand the host to connect to, but that
command works with 4.0, however, not while the desktop is locked. In both
cases, vnc is running as a service.
