If I manage to get this to work I will donate you a case of beer. I have spent the last ten days trying to get UVNC SC to go but have failed miserably. I would appreciate your help however if I do get stuck!

Just thought of a couple of questions:
Can the repeater be on the same pc as the viewer?
Can a DynDns address be used for the repeater?

Look forward to your advice.

I've moved your questions out of the Customizations FAQ, sorry that post was suppose to be locked. I'll add these questions to the FAQ. :)

Can the repeater be on the same pc as the viewer?
Yes but keep in mind that it makes the most sense to keep the repeater in a fixed location. If you will be moving the computer running ChunkViewer offsite it will be difficult to keep the network configuration updated for InstantSupport to know where to connect. In this scenario it would be best to dedicate a machine somewhere to run the repeater.

Can a DynDns address be used for the repeater?
Yes, in the installation guide I use no-ip.com as an example.

Good luck! :)

Thanks for your very speedy reply. No the "viewer" pc will most probably be kept in a fixed location so the repeater will be ok.
Pleased to hear about DynDns as well.

Will let you know as to progress and of course the crate of beer might well be heading closer!!

All seemed to be going well until I tried to run the "Instant Support" on a test pc but it was immediately blocked as a "possible virus" by AVG Resident Shield. Is this a normal occurrence with this file?
Also Kaspersky on the Repeater pc flagged it as a problem but I was able to "allow" it. So unable to proceed at the moment.

AVG 2011 has been an issue... is that the version you're using?

A small mod to the script seems to solve the issue... check the thread
"AVG2011 and V3.2"
for a script mod that works for many of us under AVG 2011.

ChunkVNC is written in AutoIt which is a programming language sadly abused by virus creators.

AVG issue thread:
AVG2011 and V3.2

The file you need to modify is SRC\InstantSupport.au3
Use a text editor such as notepad++

After a few try-and-error, I think I found the problem (or a way to avoid it at least).

In the file InstantSupport.au3 replace

FileCopy( @ScriptFullPath, $WorkingPath & "\InstantSupport.exe", 9 )

with

FileCopy( @ScriptDir & "\" & @ScriptName, $WorkingPath & "\InstantSupport.exe", 9 )

This avoid some AVG signature detection replacing a few bytes in the executable.
