VNC on Windows 7

I've installed UltraVNC 1.0.8.2 onto a Windows 7 machine... in trying to run it I get the following error:

The uvnc_service service is marked as an interactive service.  However, the system is configured to not allow interactive services.  This service may not function properly.

How do I fix?

Figured this out... TightVNC works great!

Have you tried running as Administrator?  I find this has helped me with PcAnywhere.

As a side note, I find that on some of my windows 7 machines, they are happier running tightVNC instead of UltraVNC. Not sure why, just thought I'd toss that out there...

This is being used with a service that I wrote to help customers via remote access.  The article wouldn't really help as I don't want to have the user disable a service...

2. My old version of RealVNC 4.1.9 works fine under WinXP but gives error message in Windows 7.  Even when installed and started as Administrator.

3. Presume there is a registry entry that needs to be added or modified.  So far have not found anything searching the web.

Success!  I downloaded RealVNC 5.0.3 (64-bit) and installed it on my Windows 7 64- bit system (Service Pack 1) as Administrator.  All my problems disappeared and my LAN-based connections began working properly.  It set up the listener "service" successfully which automatically activates at each boot-up. No changes were made by me to the Registry. (I have no idea what the RealVNC installer may have done to the Registry (-:  )
