Can I install VNC Connect over RDP?

Yes. However, you must first turn off the VNC Mirror Driver component if you’re installing on Windows 7 or earlier, or VNC Server will fail to install. You can do this in the installer:



To license VNC Server, navigate to the install location and run vnclicensewiz.exe.

As soon as you’ve installed and licensed VNC Server, we recommend disconnecting your RDP session and connecting using VNC Viewer instead. For Windows 7, you can then re-run the installer in-session to install just the VNC Mirror Driver component, which will greatly enhance performance.
