    TightVNC deployment

    For the past few years we have been rolling out VNC using an excellent guide that was posted on here

    How To Guide: Deploy VNC via Group Policy

    However looking recently we are on quite an old version now and there is a shiny new version out with an MSI package!

    Reading this document explains all the various options available

    http://www.tightvnc.com/doc/win/Tigh...ller-2.5.2.pdf

    However how do we add these options when deploying via a Group Policy object?

    Figured it out :

    To remove the old one a batch file with the following

    Code:
    cd c:\program files\tightvnc
    uninstall.exe /S
    (If you're using 64 bit, stick (x86) onto Program Files)

    Then to install the new MSI file another batch file with the following

    Code:
    msiexec.exe /x "\\adc1\testappsshare\vnc\MSI\tightvnc-2.7.3-setup-32bit.msi" /q
    msiexec.exe /i "\\adc1\testappsshare\vnc\MSI\tightvnc-2.7.3-setup-32bit.msi" /quiet /norestart ADDLOCAL=Server SET_IPACCESSCONTROL="1" VALUE_OF_IPACCESSCONTROL="10.201.100.108-10.201.255.255:1" SET_RUNCONTROLINTERFACE=0 VALUE_OF_RUNCONTROLINTERFACE=0 SET_USEVNCAUTHENTICATION=1 VALUE_OF_USEVNCAUTHENTICATION=1 SET_PASSWORD=1 VALUE_OF_PASSWORD=password SET_VIEWONLYPASSWORD=1 VALUE_OF_VIEWONLYPASSWORD=password SET_USECONTROLAUTHENTICATION=1 VALUE_OF_USECONTROLAUTHENTICATION=1 SET_CONTROLPASSWORD=1 VALUE_OF_CONTROLPASSWORD=password
    rmdir /s /q "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\TightVNC\"
    (The above switches need to be customized for your environment).

    Stick both batch files in a Computer Startup policy (you don't need the first one unless you're currently running an old version of VNC <2.5.2) and sorted.

    Bit messy but it works. The advantage of having it do the uninstall and reinstall of the MSI each startup is that you can change the switch options like the password etc and it should get applied to all computers next time they start up.
