Hi

Does anyone know if the ultravnc setup on the kbox will work for windows 7?
If done a an initial deployment and it comes up with a unsigned driver warning and a warning in Windows defender.

Thanks

I would recommend going with a newer version of UVNC. I am near the end of a 3 day run of getting UVNC setup for unattended installation, tuned for Win7 and secure using the newer encryption methods that are built into v1.0.95.

The unsigned driver warning can be taken care of by exporting the cert from a machine that you have manually allowed the driver to install and using the command line certificate import function on your new target machines BEFORE the installation of UVNC.

My setup looks something like this:



'copy installation files to temporary directory
robocopy UltraVNC "%temp%\UltraVNC" *.* /E
'copy UVNC config file to %progfiles%
xcopy %temp%\UltraVNC\ultravnc.ini "c:\program files\UltraVNC\" /E
'import Driver Trusted certificate
certutil.exe -addstore "TrustedPublisher" "%temp%\UltraVNC\ultravnc.cer
'begin installation of UVNC
start /wait %temp%\UltraVNC\Ultra.exe /silent /loadinf="%temp%\UltraVNC\setup.inf /log="C:\Logs\UltraVNC\install.log"
'cleanup
rmdir %temp%\UltraVNC /s /q



The ultravnc.cer is the certificate I exported off of my original setup machine, as is the ultravnc.ini. The ultravnc.ini is used instead of registry keys to allow for configuration of your Server and the setup.inf is the capture of your installation commands.

The only thing I haven't figured out is the registry keys that UVNC writes to allow for the sending of ctrl+alt+del. As of right now, the first time you send a CAD to the target machine a pop up comes up asking if you would like UVNC to write the necessary keys for the functionality. If this is not done and the computer is sitting in a locked or logged off state you can not send a CAD to the machine.

Someone else will have to address the Windows Defender issue, as we're not using at present.

I would suggest spending some time over at: http://forum.ultravnc.info/ as the software engineer for UVNC and many long time and power users frequent the board. It's been an invaluable resource for my needs.

Just wish we weren't to cheap to use Radmin so I wouldn't have wasted the last 3 days learning how to get all this right, haha.

I have used VNCed in the past.

Its geared more towards schools but they have a pretty cool vnc creation wizard.

Its kind of like the KBOX wizard but alot more in depth.

When its all over you have a nice MSI package that you can distribute just like any other piece of software.

Have you used UVNC before? If so, now would you compare them?

I'll check out VNCed this weekend as I am a little displeased at the "pixelated" look of UVNC. It works fine, but screen refresh and quality is no where near as good as Radmin, which is the only other program I have experience with. Unfortunately Radmin's licensing structure is making the powers that be weary of staying with it.
