I found a way to install the 1.04 client using either a batch file or GPO.


Step 1.

I first install a machine the way I wanted it. This was done using the

UltraVNC-xxxx-Setup.exe /saveinf="c:\ultravncInstall.inf". command

I then configured it the exact way I wanted(Password, settings, etc)

I then copied the C:\program files\ultravnc\ultravnc.ini from the configured machine (this is the one that has all of your settings)to a server share.


Step 2.

Make a folder on the machine you want to install vnc on, It must be C:\program files\ultravnc


Step 3

Copy the Ultravnc.ini file to the folder on the local machine(C:\program files\ultravnc\ultravnc.ini


Step 4.

Run the setup either manually or within a script to install vnc, see script below



VNCinstall.bat

Found a was to install 1.04 using GPO or batch file.


Mkdir "C:\program Files\ultravnc"

REM Copy File from server and put into directory

copy \\server\share\VNCInstall\ultravnc.ini "C:\program files\ultravnc\ultravnc.ini"

REM Run install

\\server\share\VNCInstall\UltraVNC_1.0.4_Setup.exe /loadinf=\\server\share\VNCInstall\ultravncInstall.inf /silent /log

I recently had to deploy this via GP and found a nifty tool at http://vnced.sourceforge.net/  Look for the "VNCed UltraVNC MSI Creator".  It's a simple java app that gives you a GUI with most of the standard UltraVNC config options and then you just click a button and it spits out a deployable MSI.  Has worked absolutely flawlessly on 1300+ computers here.

I used the method put up here by "jlquinn1" and using a batch script to install, but also needed to the install the mirror driver which greatly improves performance/accuracy:


1. Download the latest mirror driver on the Download page for UltraVNC (drivers.zip).


2. Extract the contents of drivers.zip to the same path where your installation files are at for UltraVNC.  It should have a "driver" folder with subfolders for "xp", "vista", etc.


3. Add the following lines to the batch file:


cd driver\xpsetupdrv install

cd ..\..

Note: You must cd to the directory otherwise it will fail.


4. Ensure the line "EnableDriver=1" is present in the file ultravnc.ini.
