I would like to create a single .exe file containing a pre-configured uVNC Server.

The goal is to have clients click on the .exe file on desktop, display a privacy/sharing warning click ok to approve box, install uVNC silently without any prompts and they are ready to go.

I would like to preconfigure what ports the server listens to and change default settings, ie, password, username etc.

Craft an ol' good batch file, where people type yes to accept (it's just an if).
Then you can execute the installer from within the batch file.
The following command line parameters can be passed to the setup, to make it install silently:

/dir="Dirname"
    Sets installation directory to Dirname.
/no restart
    Suppresses a reboot at the end of the installation.
    Not required since the installation no longer requires are boot.
/silent or /very silent
    Suppresses either pop-up of dialog boxes or any GUI at all.
/loadinf="Filename"
    Loads the configuration file Filenamefor the installation.
    This configuration file can be generated by going through setup with UltraVNC-xxxx-Setup.exe /saveinf="Filename".
    Filename should be fully qualified.
/log
    Writes a log file to the Temp directory.
    Could be used for debugging.

Unfortunately, there are no cli server switches you can use to quickly configure the server

But there's an exploit: you can install VNC somewhere with the option /saveinf="c:\ultravncInstall.inf". This will save to an inf file all your settings. Then you can import that file with /loadinf=\\path\to\server\share\VNCInstall\ultravncInstall.inf, so that it uses the preconfigures environment

ADDENDUM: Don't forget to copy C:\program files\ultravnc\ultravnc.ini also from the configured machine (this is the one that has all of your settings)
