I have install the lastest VNC 4.1.2 as service and the service can start
without any error message.
But the VNC tray icon doesn't appear.

When I issue command > winvnc4 -connect
it  response said:

main:   Unable to locate existing VNC Server.

But it is ok when I issue the command to port 5500 as : telnet 5500

Is anyone known the problem and can help me out ?

Thanks a lots.

I have the same problem. As Terry hasn't got an useful answer to his
question I'm asking if someone knows how to resolve this error.

Thanks in advance,
