TightVNC portable (version 1.3.10)

What is TightVNC

Recently, a new version of TightVNC was released, and a portable version of it for U3 flash drives appeared.
That’s great, but what if you don’t have a U3 flash drive, or you don’t like the U3 system in general (that’s me), or you don’t want to use it on a flash drive at all?

Well, here is how you extract the program itself from the .u3p package for a regular use:
1. Download it here.
2. Use WinRAR or similar to extract the host folder from that file, which is in fact a zip archive.
3. Use the following command line parameters to use a local ini file instead of the registry for storing your settings:
winvnc.exe -runwithinifile .\winvnc.ini
vncviewer.exe -settingsfile .\vncviewer.ini

Now you can enjoy the portable version of TightVNC without a U3 drive.

But you must agree, that it’s not really handy to use a command line every time you want to run TightVNC. Well, I’ve patched winvnc.exe and vncviewer.exe and made them use an ini file by default. These are attached below.

Finally I want to advice you to make a donation to support the project.
