Is there a switch that I can include in my script that will install TightVNC as a service?

I'm not sure if there is a way to install it as a service, but there is an administrative option to add the service once TightVNC is installed - see http://www.tightvnc.com/winst.php for details.

I haven't used tight VNC before but you could use instsrv.exe & srvany.exe to create a service and then point the application using a reg entry to that service name. Bit of a stuff around but handy for running dodgy apps as a service when required.

example:
(cmd line)
instsrv.exe MYSERVICENAME "c:\program files\APPFOLDER\srvany.exe"

(reg)
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MYSERVICENAME]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MYSERVICENAME\Parameters]
@=""
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MYSERVICENAME\Parameters]
"Application"="C:\\Program Files\\APPFOLDER\\MYAPP.exe"
"AppDirectory"="C:\\Program Files\\APPFOLDER\\"
