Version 1.0.5.3 and Windows 7

Version 1.0.5.3 and Windows 7

Postby hecash » 2009-11-24 03:40

I've been asked by a training vendor to install Version 1.0.5.3. My OS is Windows 7.

Will this version function on the Windows 7 OS?
If so, must I download the Vista addons during installation?

Thank you.

I had no prior knowledge about UltraVNC. My need to connect to the vendor was nearly immediate. Support from the vendor was only available from an existing text document; not phone. The document was specific about the version. Accordingly, I sought to employ that version and that version alone.

Thank you. I did so and it functioned sufficiently to satisfy my need but it was a bit slow.
