Vista and DSM plugins

Postby Mambolino » 2007-10-17 12:34

Hi,

Hi, sorry if I post wrong, I can't find the clue to my problem...
Under Win XP, I'm used to use UVNC 1.02 with MSRC4Plugin. Everything's ok with this...
But I can't do this with Vista.

Witch plugin that is Vista complient should I use in replacement ?

It depends on the moment...
Some DSM plugins work sometimes under Vista.

I'm trying to solve this problem

Ok, thx for the response.

Will the final release of the 1.04 version have MSRC4Plugin included like 1.02 ?

If possible, use the MSRC4 1.2.2 plugin (the latest released on DSM plugins web site)

It seems to work fine under Vista.
No configuration problem, no loading problem... just works.

I'm trying to make the AESV2 plugin work as well.

Next upcoming RC5 should give better results on DSM side under Vista, especially with viewer's autoreconnect mode.

[s]good news:[/s]
no crash anymore even on WLAN not blocking anymore.

work around

stop uvnc_service
rename MSRC4Plugin-122.dsm ---> msrc4plugin.dsm
(to do on viewer side + server side)

check the ultravnc.ini (only if ultravnc server 1.04 or higher is installed)
DSMPlugin=msrc4plugin.dsm

start uvnc_service


then you able to restart viewer for reconnect to server even after lost connection

failed,
while connection lost, server retain connection for unknown reason. :-(

Rudi found another bug
dsmplugin need read/write access
on vista is'nt possible from factory to folder \program files\...

work around
run as administrator the shortcut of vncviewer listen encrypted
"%programfiles%\ultravnc\vncviewer.exe" -dsmplugin msrc4plugin.dsm

this will allow dsmplugin to load with read/write permission to folder.

this applicable for all dsmplugin:

msrc4plugin.dsm
arc4plugin.dsm
aesv2plugin.dsm

Dear community I really need help on this strange case:
Both sides have same MSRC4Plugin.dsm and rc4.key with same MD5!
UltraVNC - 1.0.5.3

I have SC solution which use DSM and RC4
Server Side: SC solution with thees files in compiled SFX exe:
- winvnc.exe
- vnchooks.dll
- background.bmp
- logo.bmp
- MSRC4Plugin.dsm
MD5: F276CC99FE7FEB37055F0003BA283646
Size: 16.0 KB (16 384 bytes)
- icon1.ico
- icon2.ico
- rc4.key
- helpdesk.txt

OS for viewer: Windows XP SP1/SP2/SP3 x86/x64 it works
for x64 only I change the Plugin with this one:
MSRC4PluginX64.dsm
MD5: B700546CD8E9343E7B985161AE31A9F8
Size: 74.5 KB (76 288 bytes)

PATH: C:\SUPPORT with R/W access for all users

BATCH: start vncviewer.exe -listen 5500 -dsmplugin MSRC4Plugin.dsm - loglevel 10 -logfile session.log
The BATCH is in the same folder of VNCVIEWER!

SHORTCUT: "C:\support\vncviewer.exe" -listen 5500 -dsmplugin "C:\support\MSRC4Plugin.dsm" -loglevel 10 -logfile c:\support\session.log

Both start types above are working fineand till I try viewer on Vista!

So the problem/error occurs when I try to start initiate session from XP machine to Vista machine.

OS for viewer: Windows Vista Ultimate w/o SP

Connection Failed - Error reading Protocol Version

Possible causes:

- You've forgotten to select a DSMPlugin and the Server uses a DSM Plugin
- The selected DSM Plugin is not compatible with the one running on the Server

The same problem is described here:
Re: Vista and msrc4plugin.dsm

I try Run As Administrator, but nothing change!
