Are you sure you really want viewer in *listening* mode? Or do you just need a viewer (ie so as you could type in a computer name) ? Look carefully! They are different.
If you're really wanting to use "listening viewer" and come across this problem, and suppose that you're using Windows platform, take a look at Start menu > Startup folder to see if you've got a shortcut there.
If there's none, then you will need to check if the port 5500 is open. This can be done with the following command line:
netstat -n -a -p tcp
