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?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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...

IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

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...

Figured this out... TightVNC works great!

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 (-:  )
