Scripting Question

UltraVNC Deployment/Silent Install

09/24/2018 11255 views
I have been trying to figure this out for months now to no avail!  I am trying to deploy UltraVNC server to all of our workstations and Viewer to our IT computers.  I have tried scripting it through the K1000 and always get Failed Execution.  I have also tried to do a managed install and that never works.  I also tried to do it with the image and get an error as soon as I log into the new computer.  I have set my passwords in the .ini file and include that in the deployment.  Can anyone please help me get this figured out?  We are getting ready to migrated to Windows 10 and I don't want us to have to go around and tough 250+ computers to finish the imaging process.

Ultra VNC is not that Enterprise Push friendly oriented software, there are tools you could easily deploy with KACE such as Bomgard or DameWare, but those  are paid Enterprise remote control solutions.

If you are following this:

Try to create a BAT file from it, and test it outside KACE appliances, make sure it works by running the BATCH file, if everything is fine run the BAT with it's dependencies as K2000 Post Install task, or a K1000 Script

By the way,  I think it will be best to have one batch file for the Server and another one for the Viewer.

I deploy Ultra VNC all the time from my K2000 and it works great.
All of my machines are Win7, but I am preparing to do the Win10 change.
Having said that, I've not ran this against a Win10 machine yet.

I also keep this package and run it whenever I need to do a manual reinstall.
This works fine for installing UVNC and on my K2000 deployments.
I've never tried to push it, so I'm not sure if this will help you very much.

I have one installer folder for 32 bit UVNC and another for 64 bit.
Essentially, I just do this once & get my 32 bit setup and do it again & get my 64 bit setup.

I do a manual install of UVNC on a machine and tweak all the parameters that need to be adjusted & set the admin and view-only password.
I then copy that ultravnc.ini file into my installer folder, along with the UltraVNC_1_1_9_X86_setup.exe file (or whatever the current UVNC setup.exe file is).

I also have a vnccfg.inf file which just has the standard setup stuff:
Dir=C:\Program Files\uvnc bvba\UltraVNC

My installer batch file looks like this:
REM Inst_UVNC32.bat
REM Ultravnc Install - RRH - 140725

Mkdir "C:\program Files\uvnc bvba\UltraVNC"
REM Copy running vnc.ini and put into directory
copy ultravnc.ini "C:\program files\uvnc bvba\UltraVNC\ultravnc.ini"
REM Run install
UltraVNC_1_1_9_X86_Setup.exe /loadinf=vnccfg.inf /silent /log

Those 4 files: the Inst_UVNC32.bat, Ultravnc.ini, UltraVNC_1_1_9_X86_Setup.exe, and Vnccfg.inf are the only files needed.
The batch file makes the Program files folder & copies the ultravnc.ini file to it.
Next, the Setup.exe is executed and uses the settings from the vnccfg.inf file to perform the installation.

Hope this helps,

  • Do you use network credentials?
    • I probably should, but I only use the VNC credentials.
