Can someone update the ChunkVNC Fork 4.0.0 packages with the latest Ultravnc 1.1.9.0 version?

Rat may have to confirm but you should be able to simply replace the winvnc.exe file in the SRC directory with the newest and just compile again.

Godson, I had the same problem.

You can replace the logo.jpg in the folder (for the 32 bits version) :
C:\Program Files (x86)\ChunkVNC\Remote Support (32-bits) v4.0.0\ChunkVNC\Source\UltraVNC

I'm sure Rat will fix it for the next release but this workaround worked for me.

Not sure if this is any help, but here are the logos for the 3 different ChunkVNC operation modes. I've done these in preparation for the upcoming new release, (v4.1.0).

Hi Rat, your fork of chunkvnc is great remote support tool. I test 32 and 64 bits of 4.0.0 version, with example 3 (generate random ID)... But in both version 32/64bits instantsupportviewer.exe maybe is not configured right. When i compile version and distribute instantsupportviewer.exe to technical support person. When they start viewer, under the place when they enter ID, "Using:" is empty, there is nobody IP address of my repeater.
For workaround: i must compile and configure version on every technical support person computer...

I follow tips of Zyxyx for integrate my logo.

Rat,

Good work on the upgrade. Your work is appreciated. I am planning your fork with other improvements. I have a few questions, if you have time / the chance:

Are any of these mods implemented:

JS files are set to open inside of an editor fix (viewtopic.php?f=50&t=29209)
[
Code is displayed only after connection is checked and server started
In the main loop checks for running vnc server process and if it is not running "Error" is displayed,the connection is retried and then the server is relaunched. If it fails again exits.
Every 5 minutes tries to open a socket to the repeater and if it fails "Error" is displayed,the connection is retried and then the server is relaunched. If it fails again exits
If somehow the InstantSupportVNC.exe was deleted, istantsupport.exe became unclosable and had to be killed. Fixed by using ShellExecute instead of _Run in _DeleteSelf. Is this ok? i've never used AutoIt before and i'm learning as i try to change stuff.
The desktop link can save the current code. is encoded in the command line.
Checks if the winvnc.exe process has an established connection with the repeater
Changed the js script with a winapi call because the script was changing the modified date of all files of the folder, and this looks very suspicious.
repeater addess is hardcoded, but the ini alternative code is there, commented
Can fallback on some other tool
Main loop with timers to keep cpu usage low
I used scite to compile
reboot into safe mode with networking
]
(http://forum.ultravnc.info/viewtopic.ph ... ec5e387851)
ChunkVNC viewer that keeps a list (http://forum.ultravnc.info/viewtopic.ph ... ec5e387851)
Newest Ultra and Repeater (with WebGUI)? (it appears these can be dropped in the correct source folders and will work as intended?)

I apologize if these are covered elsewhere. I am just starting to look in to this. Let me know if a small donation is a good motivator :)

Thank you,

Silekonn

Hi Rat,
I have a couple of questions:
    does your fork allow to use the repeater and the viewer on the same LAN?
    I need to support a customer who connects via proxy: can the program import and use proxy settings from Internet Explorer?

Thank you very much!

Here is why the new repeater is of interest:

Its parser of destination name is somewhat broken. One example is the name with hyphens (e.g. TEST-PC) - the repeater takes the part before the first hyphen as the host name (TEST in this example) and tries to resolve it (no wonder that it fails). Probably it is related to splitting the supplied name to "comment" and host name - but in this case I think that the delimiter has to be adjustable (via WebGUI for example).

dear forum members, Rat

The latest version v4.0 works beautifully, great work! Thanks for the continued developement, Rat. I however have 2 customization questions, I hope someone can help me with this.

1) How can I edit the dialog text of the instantsupport file. In the original version of Chunkvnc I was able to edit the dialog text of the instantsupport file. In this version I can't find how to edit it. I already checked the ChunkVNCSupportDefs in the source folder and all the other au3 files but couldn't find this text. Spefically I would like to edit the exit dialog:

"are you sure you want to close ....
Click yes and wait .... "

Is it possible to edit this and how?


2) Is it possible, again like in the original chunkvnc version, to set a password?

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Hello folks.

Same questions about customization and security over here.
There should be a little setup and customization guide out there. It is more trial and error i can handle. ;)

I used chunkVNC with Windows repeater a while ago but i need a more stable version with Windows 7 support.

Is the developement still active? No replies for at least 4 month from the great "rat"! ;)

Many thanks for developing! If any help is needed i will do my best!

Greetings,
Warromat

I can't speak for Rat but I've been actively developing for a couple weeks now.
I hope Rat sticks around, he's been a big help to the community!

On a side note, I've been using the "official" release 3.3.1 to run my business and I use it with Windows XP/Vista/7/8/2003/2008 without issue. Open a new thread if you have to but I'm interested in the issues you are having. Keep in mind I can only help you with my releases as Rat has change many things in his release.

Is there anyway to the VNC Remote to have a minimize option? I have it working, but I would like for the tech to be able to minimize the app when working remotely.

Yes, a minimize option would be nice. As a workaround I have found that the window can be moved mostly off-screen, which while messier than a true minimized state at least gets it out of the way.

I've got V4.0.0 set up with the latest UltraVNC executables and pretty much customized the way I want except for one thing - with the standard issue ChunkVNC you can set a password which needs to be entered when the viewer makes the connection. This adds a little extra security. Is it possible to do that in this the fork? (I searched for password options in the config files and did not find anything.)

Overall this looks great. I'm hoping with the new UltraVNC server this will work well with Windows 8. I've been finding that with regular ChunkVNC, screen updates frequently don't work on that OS unless you constantly hit the manual refresh. (A PITA to say the least.)

Hi, Has anyone been able to customize this version? I'm trying to customize it to generate a Random number by following Rat's guidelines in the beginning of the post
But any changes I make to the ChunkvncsupportDefs.au3 even if it's a branding it will not compile. The compile will work but when I run the ChunkVNCRemote app it will only show me the option for a multi Technician format.

Has anyone been able to customize this properly and if so was there any other steps involved? I'm only restoring to this fork as I can't seem to use the newer versions of uvnc on Original Chunk now.


Thanks
****************************************************************************************************************************
To generate Example 3 the following changes to "ChunkVNCSupportDefs.au3" would be required:
Code: Select all
Global $ConnectIdType = $ConnectIdRandom
$AutoConnect = True
Global $ShowTitleBar = True
Global $AllowLogoClick = True
Global $ShowExitButton = False
Global $ShowHelpButton = False
Global $ShowConnectButton = False
Global $StaffList = 0

Then run "InstantSupportCompileAll.exe"...

V4.0.0.0 works fine. It took time to customize it as customization is not easy and there is a need to edit lots of stuff in code.

Now when I've don it I found out that I have to do it all over again for 64 bit version...

Is there a chance to get one version that runs in 32bit or 64bit mode as needed so that we have to do all customizations once?

Also, Viewer part is not stand alone. You have to copy almost whole source with Viever exe. It would be nice to get standalone exe as server is.

After troubleshooting this script for an entire day superco I'm really looking forward to an updated chunkvnc. I guess I could have saved myself a lot of hassle and just compiled chunkvnc dropping in a new ultravnc binary- myself but I didn't really think of it until I was half way through configuring this mess. I appreciate that the mess exists though.

It looks like Rat started out wanting to have separate profile files for compiling but the references between files are really confusing and not at all correct. I found myself changing the same entries across several files hoping I didn't miss one. The option to turn on administrator didn't work for me at all. Looks like something went wrong with copying the files to the temp folder or the paths. I finally got fed up and just removed the entry from right click menu.

The option for switching modes on the viewer for those of us without loopback support is just gone. I can appreciate what rat did here. I really can but man I'm used to setting these things up and this was really difficult.

If you're using windows 7 the default installation path is in program files. That's great except you can't edit the files in program files because of windows file protections so make sure you install the pack somewhere else to avoid that. I think a guy 3 or 4 posts up from me was having that exact issue and that's why his stuff wasn't compiling.

Anyway. Thanks for the updates Rat.

Rat said about a year ago that upcoming version is 4.1.0, but no new versions have been released... :(
