Recent connections rarely get saved

Post by utopia1893 »

Older versions would consistently save the most recent connections in the drop-down list where you enter the computer to control. More recent versions rarely do this, and I have seen no consistency in when. Most often, the connection is not saved. I am on a Windows domain with Folder Redirection turned on, so Application Data, My Documents, and other user folders are not on the PC but on the network. Any chance of getting this fixed?

Ultravnc save the last used in the file option.vnc in the vncviewer.exe folder.
The section looks like
[connection]
index=AJL
A=localhost
L=localhost:8888
J=localhost:5901
[LOCALHOST]

You can manual add connections yourself.
index=AJLK
A=localhost
L=localhost:8888
J=localhost:5901
K=123.123.123.123:5908

In case, you don't have write access to programfile/uvncbvba/ULtraVNC/option.vnc , the %appdata%UltraVNC is used.

Possible there is you issue of not consistent saving.
If you use different users ( admin/non admin) they gonna save the settings in other folders.

Workaround
Copy vncviewer.exe to a writable folder, then all users will use the same option.vnc file.
