How to install a second version on one computer

Post by docfxit »

I have one PC running ver. 1.2.1.2. I just installed ver. 1.3.8.1 on a new PC. I can't connect to it from my first PC.
I have about 35 PC's running ver. 1.2.1.2.
How can I install ver. 1.3.8.1 on my first PC so I can still connect to the old versions while I am updating them to the latest versions?

Installing multiple viewers is easy, just rename the old vncviewer_old.exe and copy a new in the same folder.

Normal all should be compatible, but bewteen 1.2.1.2 and 1.3.8.1 2016->2022 are many years and version.

You can also run multiple server.
Start the second manual winvnc.exe -multi
then you have one running on port 5900 and another on port 5901

I'm sure 1.3.8.1 has the option -multi, test if it also exist if you start the 1.2.1.2 manual as seconds instance
