UltraVNC SC - Why has this be so complicated?

Post by ltrvnc »

I am using UltraVNC since back in the days.

What always bugged me was the online creator beeing seemingly outdated (2005).

Also I never wanted to give my IP or domainname away for an online creator.

So my question is: Why has this still b so complicated in 2022?

Why do I have to use external programs just to compile a new fresh SC based on UltraVNC 1.3.8.0?

Please! update your howto and teach people on creating the SC themselves. You should realize that some postings dating back to 2009 were complaining even then.

That said: Thanks a lot for your program!!!

Maybe now that 1.3.8.0 is now concrete, and available, he can refocus some time on SC.

I have not yet used SC, but it looks promising. However, I will wait and see if there are some new developments to bring it more up to date as discussed above before trying it out. In fact, I'd be happy to help test the development versions.

Well given my experience over the years I highly doubt any progress here unfortunately...

The focus of this project detoriated far back.

@rvk
Thanks for your effort much appreciated

@rudi @all
If I use the *newest* onlinecreator here https://support1.uvnc.com/cgi-bin/upload11.pl then I get a winvnc.exe dated back form 23.05.2019 which I have to replace manually by the newest version from the official zip file. Along with fiddeling around with at least 2 external programs, editing config files and replacing outdated SecureVNCPlugins that are hidden somewhere in forum posts.

Honestly do you think anybody is interested in this anymore around this time of the process? This is not for "normal people" sorry. (I myself am a nerd btw.)

I get it that the online creator once should have made it *simpler* but in fact what really would made it simple would be a detailed guide and batch script on page 1 of the site here. Nobody wants to be searching for this in forum posts dated 2009.

Come on Rudi it's 2022 and *this* is exactly why UltraVNCSC never made it big despite all it's advantages over that closed source b*llshit.

So the question remains:

Why has this be so complicated?
