Windows 7 – VNC Wont Work

KB ID 0000243 Dtd 05/05/10

Problem

You have VNC and have suddenly realised that its stopped working for your Windows 7 clients. It’s been a while since I’ve used VNC, but I had a client call this morning to ask what he should use. As he is one of the good guys I fired up the test bench and did some testing.

Solution

Use Tight VNC, at time of writing version 2.0 Beta 3 works on,

  • Windows 2000 Professional, Windows 2000 Server
  • Windows XP, Windows 2003 Server
  • Windows Vista, Windows 2008 Server
  • Windows 7, Windows 2008 Server R2
