I'm currently evaluating VNC Manager (Enterprise edition) for use in our server environment.
We are using a mixture of HP Proliant servers including a C class bladecenter.
When I use VNC Manager to push an installation of UltraVNC to a server, the video hook driver doesn't install correctly. Even though the deployment wizard logs no errors during the install.
If I launch the Service Helper, right click on the icon then go to properties, the first thing I notice in the "WinVNC: Current User Properties" dialog box is that the "Video Hook Driver" box isn't checked, even though in the deployment wizard I told it to do so. If I check this box and click "OK" then go back into the properties it's unchecked again.
Additionally, if I click on the "Check Video Hook Driver" button I see that the version numbers for the 3 components listed in the "Driver Test" dialog box are garbled. You can see a screenshot of it at this link: http://epic.shellfx.net/~bitbyte/vnc.jpg
If I go in and manually run the driver installation batch file in the UltraVNC folder, it fixes the problem. But it's hardly a good solution for deploying to 150+ servers. I get this problem on all of the server types I've tried it on. Additionally, if I do a manual install of UltraVNC using the software downloaded from UVNC, it works fine.
I've tried this same process using both versions 3.5 and 3.6 beta with the same result.
Thanks for your input.
