TightVNC client 1.3.10 to TightVNC server 2.7.10

I installed TightVNC 2.7.10 (from http://www.tightvnc.com/download.php) on a Win 7
desktop & a TightVNC  Ver 1.3.10 (from http://www.tightvnc.com/download-old.php)
on a Win XP laptop.

Reason I used older version on the Win XP is the version I got from the 1st link is in
.msi extension & can't install on Win XP so I decided to use an older version.

Both are on the same subnet with Windows Firewall turned off.  The Win XP laptop
could connect to the desktop & after entering password to login, the keyboard hits
& mouse clicks/movements produced no response, seems like readonly.

I certainly did not check on the "View Only" option.

Do I need "DFMirage mirror display driver"  (from http://www.demoforge.com/dfmirage.htm) ?

If anyone can point me to an exact URL to download 2.7.10 for
Win XP, I could install that on the laptop

Once you have installed TightVNC server on one PC, all you need to do is to copy the viewer to the client using any method you care to (i.e. flash drive, shared folder, etc.)  The viewer runs without any need for installation.  You can find its location by doing Start -> All Programs -> Tight VNC -> then right-click the Viewer icon and choose properties.

I'll bet you ran into a compatibility issue due to the version mismatch.

P.S. I've been using the VNC software since 2002.

When I copied over from Win 7 the tvnviewer & run on my Win XP,
it says it's not a valid Win32 application.  

Where can I get Ver 2.7.10 for 32 bit Win XP?
