    Hes right you know, i have sent it to hundreds of machines via group policy and not one of them has the icon tray.

    You untick the box, export the reg settings and send them settings to the clients as shown above.

    I dont quite understand this thread about deploying VNC.........

    Just download: RealVNC - VNC® Deployment Tool (VNC Deployment Tool) and you can push the free vnc version out with a config file.

    I did this at my last place, deployed to 300 machines within 30mins with config file.

    The problem with the free RealVNC is that it doesn't support Windows 7. Also a start script would be better if you have a large environment.

    Did you set the password on the machine you configured all the settings?

    yeah, i ran the setup from a shared folder (on a server) onto the first PC, in the setup i configured the password.
    after installation this PC was great but the reg file i exported didn't do the trick to other pc getting the gpo.
    for some reason the viewer gets installed too even though i wanted just the server.
    very annoying..

    found the problem, i exported 32bit OS reg file that worked only with 32bit OS's because the tightVNC reg is in a different location in 32\64 OS's.
    so i exported a 64bit ver as well and got 2 vers of the reg file.
    then just added another IF in original script. script included:

    if exist "C:\Program Files (x86)\TightVNC" goto :eof ELSE
    if exist "C:\Program Files\TightVNC" goto :eof ELSE
    "\\beta\TVNC\tightvnc-2.0.2-setup.exe" /S

    if exist "C:\Program Files (x86)\" goto :X64 ELSE
    regedit /S "\\beta\TVNC\32bit.reg
    goto :finish

    :X64

    regedit /S "\\beta\TVNC\64bit.reg"
    goto :finish

    :finish
    net stop "TightVNC Server"
    net start "TightVNC Server"
    rmdir /s /q "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\TightVNC\"

    You can do all of this without registry fragments now, just set MSI properties to set passwords, hide icons etc.

    hi all, this is a great solution but will it work for an environment with windows 7 32 bit and windows 7 64 bit? Is there some WMI filtering required or will the above simply work as it is?

    Thanks
