Update 1.1.8 (Stable) download +info

Postby Rudi De Vos » 2012-09-11 20:16

Corrected w8hook.dll -> w8hook64.dll: name was wron for x64

Update 1.1.6
w8hook was never used
schook was also disabled
added "used hooking method" in the systray balloon tip.

Update 1.1.5
Installers now contain all X86 or X64 bins.
The installer check the OS and install the bin that fit your OS.
There are 3 exe in th installer. w2K is compiled with VS9,win8 compiled with VS11 and VS10 for all other.
VS11 Compiler seems to cause some trouble on win7, vs11 is only for win8.


What's new.

-windows 8 support ( w8hook, same speed as a mirror driver but all in user mode)
-security fix ( encryption plugin + vnc passwd : password can be broken)
-better multi monitor support
-adaptive packet size ( bigger on lan/ smaller on wan... depend on the recorded packet loss: works only as service)
-fix some stalls during initial screns, sometimes this was deadlocking
-many little bug fixes

2 installers
One install all GPL stuff, other the non GPL addons.
This avoid the need to be connected to the internet to download the non GPL parts.
Using 2 different installers we fullt follow GPL rules.

WARNING:
To fix the security issue we needed to change the handshaking.
new Viewer still work with older server, give security warning
new server require new viewer ( using old viewer you get message to upgrade)

download

Many thanks for this new release, but I'm missing the separate addon installers for Windows 2k and XP.
Please check the Innosetup script and adjust the min version to support Windows 2k and XP before publishing the new addon installers (in all earlier releases from 1.1.0 to 1.1.3 the min version was set to Windows Vista and therefore no installation was possible under the mentioned windows versions).

Can you clarify something?

If I want to use this as a VNC *client* only...

Do I just run the UltraVNC_1_1_4_Setup.exe installer only?

Or do I also need to run the "Addons" installer as well?

Thanks!

The addon plugin contain the encryption plugs, if you use them, you also need to install the addon.
If you don't need them, no need to install the addon.

On my Windows 8 64-bit test machine...

I uninstalled the 1.1.0 (and 1.1.1) versions that were listed in "Programs and Features".

I installed the "UltraVNC_1_1_4_SetupX64" build on this machine.

However, after installation, if I select "About WinVNC" -- it says "UltraVNC Win32 Server 1.1.4"


Is that correct? Shouldn't it be "Win64"? Or is the "VNC Server" part 32-bit and only the *Viewer* is 64-bit?

Hello Rudi,

I've been searching the download for a 2000/XP compliant 32-bit binaries zip also including schooks.dll and w8hooks.dll
I found nothing. The addon installer doesn't unpack w8hooks.dll. I'm assuming the reason is my Vista32 OS.

We have to support 2000/XP/Vista/7/8 with one winvnc.exe that is also able to use w8hooks.dll if needed. Is this possible?
We're not able to enrol multiple OS depending winvnc.exe.

Cheers

We need all files unpacked, no installer. So, if installing on win8 is the only possibility to get the w8hook extracted, I can life with this.

But: I understood right? The winvnc.exe which is able to use the w8hook won't work under 2000/XP? Would this mean: If I want to make one single package working on 2000/XP/Vista/7/8 AND use the w8hook if needed, I have to roll out 2 different winvnc.exe and start the right one depending from the OS. Correct?

The bin used for w2k will also work on win8.
I think you can install the w8hook.dll (VS11) + winvnc (VS9) togther.
w8hook isn't used unless the OS is win8.

Not tested...but in theory it should work.

Wait -- I'm confused with all the new downloads and name changes...

For my Windows 8 64-bit client -- do I want "UltraVNC_1_1_5_SetupX64.exe"?

EDIT: Nevermind, I tried this and it worked and "About WinVNC" now says "UltraVNC X64 Server 1.1.5"



However, for my Windows 2003 server, do I want the "UltraVNC_1_1_5_X86_Setup.exe"?


(It's not clear to me what I should now use for Windows 2003 server?)

I know, it was to compex.

Now there are only 2 installers, X86 and X64
The installer contain all bins and install the correct one based on the OS.
I thought this would be simpler.

Hi,

I just just installed 1.1.5.0 on my htpc (only server) and on my workstation (only viewer). On the htpc everything is running fine but on the workstation
the viewer won't start. I did uninstall the previous version (1.0.9.6.2) first.

I will get this in the eventlog:

I can't get it to work anymore at all since 1.1.4.0. :evil:

Running the viewer on Win 7 Ultimate 32bit and the server on Win 8 Enterprise 32bit. Server is running as service, System HookDLL is installed and checked on the property page. Win8hook and Win8keys are also installed, but I don't know where I can see whether they are in use or not.

So here's what happens:
I can connect to the server and see everything that's on a security-screen. That's the login-screen, the screen I get when pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and whenever UAC pops up. In all other cases I can only see a black screen in my viewer.

Clicking on 'Refresh screen' in the menubar has no effect.

Keyboard and mouse integration works, as I can see on the monitor temporary connected to the server-machine.

Sending CTRL+ALT+DEL using the menubar works, pressing CTRL+ALT+F4 does not.

OK. Got it working.

What I've done is renaming w8hook.dll - is this just working when server AND viewer are running on Win 8?

Hi,

I just upgraded to UltraVNC 1.1.5 on a w2k box and had a few problems.

Firstly, the new installer didn't work. There were some file not found errors during the installation. Only 5 files were installed and it looked like they were basically the license and the uninstaller.

So I installed it manually and everything worked OK apart from the mirror driver. At 8 bit color it worked fine. At 16 bit it worked but the colours were all wrong. I downgraded to UVNC 1.0.9.6.2 and the colours at 16 bit were OK again. (At 24 bit the mirror driver didn't work for either version) I did try uninstalling/reinstalling the mirror driver.

Regards,

Phil

Sounds good, I'll test your theory ;) Is there a simple way to determine whether w8hook.dll is used or not? Except the performance? Something like winvnc.systemtray->"Info" or "About"?

No, but's it's a good idea to add the capture method to the about box.

To test.
Disable screen polling and only use the systemhook.
(Make sure schook or vnchook doesn't exist to avoid that vnc skip w8hook and use the other)

Normal, when polling is disabled and you use the sc or vnchook all is slow.
If the w8hook is used, you should see the same speed without polling.

Installed 1.1.6_x64 over 1.1.5_x64 on my Windows 8 64 machine.

Programs and features says 1.1.6 is installed.

But "About WinVNC" -- still says 1.1.5 (build: Nov 11 15:58:00)

Viewer -- says x64 1.1.6

Typo in the "About" box?

Damm it shoudl say 1.1.6, but my folder still say 1.1.5.

Something else I noticed (which may be fixed in the GM build, maybe?)

I had 1.1.0 (and 1.1.1) 32-bit installed, then upgraded to 1.1.5 64.

I uninstalled all 3 before installing that "new" 1.1.5 64 build.

when looking at C:\Program Files\unvc bvba\UltraVNC

There are still old versions of the documentation in that folder:

Whatsnew -- dated 10/23/2012

License -- 10/23/2012

Readme -- 9/10/2012

All referencing the 1.1.0 versions...

So uninstalling 1.1.0, then 1.1.1 and 1.1.5 -- never removed those 3 files.

Hello Rudi,

this package is still 1.1.5
http://www.uvnc.eu/download/110/bin_ZIP_106/UVNC_1_1_6_w2k_X86.zip

If you check the file description of winvnc.exe you'll see 1.1.5 AND the screen keeps still black on Win8 using w8hook.dll
Would you please update this package?
