yes ... i will update the second post in the forum, to explain all current INI entry settings ... this should help many people get a better understanding of how to customise to their needs ...burnsy1882 wrote:... unlike the SC program, this one is not prompting me to accept the connections... Is there a setting that needs to be changed in order to allow the prompting?

I have added this to the wish-list ... but at the moment, i am pressed for time, and may not get to it for quite a long time ...arv wrote:So what I'd love to see, is either:
- a way to use my own icon for the blinking tray icon,
- or even better, the timer GUI to stay open during connection with an "exit" button (and possibly the connection status)
This is the older version of the app, try out the newest version, and see if it works better for you ...arv wrote:Also, after SCPrompt closes it shows a dialog asking whether all files should be deleted...
Thankyou, and thanks for letting me know what file format to use ... i will add it as a seperate file "Lang_Polish.ini"arv wrote:And here's my contribution - the Polish translation
The problem is that UltraVNC doesn't handle the -sc_prompt commandline properly. instead of showing the display of the active user, it shows the display of the user that started the process. when installed, winvnc.exe is started by system, which doesn't have a display.arv wrote:I've noticed that if I set UseSC_Prompt=1, then I get the prompt whether I (the listening viewer) want to accept the connection, but then the screen in the viewer is blank (all black).
the latest version of SCPrompt has a customised version which fixes this issue, but if there is already a service installed, it uses that instead. there is no easy fix for this, other than update the version of ultravnc to the latest beta (which should have this fixed by now).
This GUI was submitted by a contributor, and it has other issues that i am trying to work through, when i solve these, i will add the service mode to this GUI ... but be patient please!faba wrote:tried the latest build ... but ... found some bugs.
GUI_TYPE button ... there is no possibility to activate vnc running as a service.
See below commentsfaba wrote:Parameters like autoconnect or service mode doesn't seem to be forwarded to Scprompt if the alternative to 7z is used. Using 7z is no option atm since you get asked all the time if the installation has worked fine on Windows Vista and newer.
Servicemode depends upon a user having administrator priviledges. this gets a bit tricky in vista & windows 7, but the latest version should have solved this, i have started using NSIS (see the batch file in latest release), as this allows for several improvments such as icons on the desktop for if the PC is rebooted (start & remove icons), and hopefully someday an online builder like SC has (but don't hold your breath on this one). NSIS will be integrated into the Builder (packager) soon, as a packaging option ... this should solve most people problems i think ... don't blame me, M$ move the bar constantly, and we just have to try to play catch up ...faba wrote:Is there a possibility to remove the files and service if the system gets shutdown or restarted?
The file transfers is a part of UVNC, not scprompt, and therefore out of my control. I just created (some / most) of a GUI frontend which allows improved ways of using and building a SC replacement using UVNC server ...faba wrote:And like someone else has asked some time ago it would be great if a confirmation dialog is displayed before initiating file transfers.
Thanks for your help. my time is mostly spent improving & fixing, and not documenting. the way this GUI is activated will change in a coming release, but i need to finish other things first... not telling you whats coming till its ready, that way i don't get people waiting for it.mojotaker wrote:Personally for me, the instructions on enabling gui 5(auto connect), was not clear.
I have now figured it out and would like to share it, with my own understanding.
Some windows installs just do this with VNC, i had three windows 2000 servers on a site i maintained in the past, each ran the same hardware, same server version, applications, everything, but 1/3 was a pain with doing what your talking about. the only thing you can do is try installing the drivers (tray icon>tools>drivers), and rebooting... if this fails, just try hitting the refresh button when you cannot see the changes (a pain yes, but its a VNC problem ... ask in the main forums - sorry)faba wrote:I don't know if it is a Scprompt or a vnc problem but I can't see the task bar submenu when clicking on a running program.... so what could be the reason and more important how can I circumvent this behavior?
The problem is that the existing UltraVNC service doesn't handle the -sc_prompt commandline properly (the prompt the viewer about the connection). instead of showing the display of the active user, it shows the display of the user that started the process. when installed, winvnc.exe is started by system, which doesn't have a display.Mr.Reds wrote:The button gui allow to have big button and it 's great for the customers which have tactil pc with no keyboard and mouse (retail).
I've a problem for the uvnc and scprompt coexistance.
What are the correct parameters in scprompt.ini file to allow the connection without stop or remove ultravnc server?
Have you looked at chunkvnc ??? thats better suited for repeater connections i think ??? (been a while since i looked at it)
This is a windows 7 issue ... microsoft desided to block all self-extracting-zip archives ... (ie 7zip, winzip etc) from executing unless you have admin priveledges ... this is why i created the NSIS batch script ... take a look at it, and improve it where you can.gumbo wrote:Using a 7-zip exe RYO version, the user downloads the .exe runs it:
i) Non-admin users are asked to enter an administrator username/password to run it. Is there any way that I can enter these details for them get it to run for non-admin users some how? This might be a chicken and egg problem.. I just don't like to give the users the administrator details..
This is definetly not expected ... is this something you have seen on all computers ??? or just one ???gumbo wrote:ii) If I give the user the admin credentials anyway and connect, when finished and exited, UAC stays turned off on the user's PC, even after reboot. Is this expected?
Yep, still around, but just massively busy for this time of year (with no end in sight), but I found a half day to myself, and spent it replying to posts on the foum, and catching up on personal emails and such ... hundreds of emails in a few months ... geesh some people send me crap ...Zyxyx wrote:Just a quick post to see if you are still around and if there will be an update to SCPrompt anytime soon ?
I hope that everything's ok for you and that you'll find some time for your great soft.
i will try to work through some of the changes that people have asked for ... and go from there, but don't expect an update anytime soon ... just too darned busy with work that pays my bills to spend time on the stuff that doesn't im afraid.
