I use Ultra VNC 1.1.02 to remotely administer my clients.  For a while now the application will crash within 10 seconds of making a connection to a system.  The event I get is below...

A Microsoft Error Report pops up saying,

Vncviewer.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close.  We are sorry for the inconvenience,

I have tried to uninstall the app and clean the registry and the files, then reinstall the app with no luck.  I do not see any Events on the Client end.  I have doubled checked to ensure that we are using the proper .dsm and .key files for encryption and that we are running the same VNC version on both ends.  Has anyone else seen an issue like this and is there a fix for it.
