Command Line
This uses InnoSetup so you can do silent installs:

Server only:
vnc-4_1_1-x86_win32.exe /SILENT /COMPONENTS="!vncviewer, winvnc" /TASKS="installservice, launchservice"

Server + Viewer:
vnc-4_1_1-x86_win32.exe /SILENT /COMPONENTS="vncviewer, winvnc" /TASKS="!quicklaunchicon, desktopicon, installservice, launchservice"

By using the ! symbol you can choose to not install a component as demonstrated above. This all works for V4.1.1, I haven't tried with V4.0.

Also you can use /VERYSILENT if you don't want a progress dialogue.

Note
To enter the serial number information (for Enterprise), first run the VNC installation, then run vncconfig.exe to enter your license key.

"C:\Program Files\RealVNC\VNC4\vncconfig.exe" -noconsole -license XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX

FYI: Some settings are missing in the Group Policy Object Editor.

Administrative Templates can contain both true policies and preferences, but by default the Group Policy Object Editor exposes only true policies. To show all possible settings, you need to expose preferences in the Group Policy Object Editor.

To expose preferences in the Group Policy Object Editor

1. Highlight the Administrative Templates node for which you want to see preferences.

2. On the View menu, click Filtering, and then clear the Only show policy settings that can be fully managed check box.

Note
The installer for RealVNC 4.4.3 (at least the Enterprise Edition for Windows) offers to install the Mirror Driver too, as a subcomponent of the VNC Server.

To install this, you can either put an asterisk in front of winvnc in the components section so that winvnc and all subcomponents are installed, or you can install it explicitly. The component name is "WinVNC/VNCMirror", so:

either:

/COMPONENTS="WinVNC"
or
/COMPONENTS="WinVNC,WinVNC/VNCMirror"

To create a log file, I used the /LOG=logfilepath switch.

To stop creation of Start Menu icons, I used the /NOICONS switch.

My new install script goes like this:

start /w C:\winnt\installer\RealVNC\4.4.3\RealVNC443.exe /SP- /VERYSILENT /NORESTART /NOICONS /COMPONENTS="!vncviewer,*winvnc" /TASKS="installservice,launchservice" /LOG=C:\temp\RealVNC443.log

regedit /s C:\winnt\installer\RealVNC\4.4.3\RealVNC443.reg
"c:\Program Files\RealVNC\VNC4\vncconfig.exe" -license licensenumbergoeshere
"c:\Program Files\RealVNC\VNC4\vncconfig.exe" -service -generatekeys

The reg key is as follows:

Changing connection password :

net stop "vnc server version 4"
reg add "HKlm\SOFTWARE\RealVNC\WinVNC4" /v password /d <pwd_hash> /t REG_BINARY /f
net start "vnc server version 4"

with <pwd_hash> somthing like 2e845d6f8
you have to copy that from the registry of a well configured computer
