Sometimes I have situations where I want to give individuals remote VNC access to another PC. For example, we have a PC that serves as a digital recorder for our security IP cameras. I want to have the Plant Manager be able to launch a remote session using a .vnc file on his desktop so he can view security footage.
From the user's PC, I connect manually to the target PC using UltraVNC and then save the connection info, using the menu in UltraVNC, to a .vnc file on their desktop. However, when I try to launch the .vnc file, the PC doesn't know what application to use to launch the file. If I manually try to associate the .vnc extension with the winvnc.exe file, it still fails to launch, resulting in a UVNC error "Invalid VNC Server specified".
The reason I'm posting this problem to the SCode forum is because this is only a problem for PCs that have UVNC installed by the SCode UVNC installation of UVNC. On PCs where I have installed UVNC using the install file downloaded from the UVNC.org website, you have the checkbox option, during install, of associating the .vnc extension with the UVNC application and .vnc files launch without problem.
I have not found any option in the SCode Install Wizard configuration for enabling .vnc extension association. Is there a way to do it?
