uvnc on Windows 7 stops responding

Postby bgm » 2009-09-03 09:01

I'm using 1.0.65 x64 uvnc on Windows 7 Build 7600.16385 x64 ultimate.
After an half an hour of remote session service stops responding
and after a few minutes viewer disconnects.
If I try to connect again viewer waits for connection infinitely.
When I go on server uvnc icon is yellow, left and right mouse buttons
give no action.
Task manager shows the status of service as running no :idea:
I have change the property of the service to be restarted
if it hangs but this of course didn't happened. (service status is running)
Any solution or a way to remotely restart service?

I've seen uvnc on XP die with similar symptoms. I have a suspicion that loss of network connectivity may sometimes trigger this because I saw it happen recently with a bad network cable. I will try to test whether this is reproducible.

To recover, try using pskill from systeminternals to kill winvnc.exe (both instances will die), then use psservice to restart uvnc_service.

Pskill looks promising but doesn't work for me.
I'm on Linux box and run it on wine command prompt.
Output on pskill is:

Couldn.t access to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
Path not found

Are you using the video hook driver? I had a machine that was failing when a connection was open for hours. I disabled the video hook driver and ran all afternoon without failing. But given how long it takes to fail, this test was far from conclusive. I've also got a user who connects from home to work. She lacks admin rights, so can't kill winvnc. I disabled the video hook driver on her work machine a few days ago and she hasn't reported any failures since then. But again, this experiment hasn't been running long enough to be conclusive.

I don't use video hook driver.
It's not working on Windows 7 platform.

Beta 10762 solves the issue.
