Please verify if you are testing with the correct server/viewer, sometimes you can have 2 servers running on different ports.
Check if about has the proper version: 1.3.7 dev-6.
I did validate the processes running with the versions installed. Yes they are the ones from the 1.3.7 dev-6 packages.
All tests performed while running as service.
Binary winvnc.exe build date 2022-02-27 18:09, reporting file version 18.104.22.168 and product version 1.3.7 dev-6, running on Windows 11,
Binary vncviwer.exe build date 2022-02-25 22:50 (obviously built earlier), reporting file version 22.214.171.124 and product version 1.3.7 dev-6, running on Windows 10.
Can't get it to display any custom message as soon as "[ ] MS Logon" in Admin properties is disabled. As soon as MS Logon is enabled it is working as intended.
Please also have a look at the suggestion to first display the connection frame and then display the quick-info connection message after.
Update: I just tried again, fresh installation with latest installer. On Server-Side I have uninstalled and cleaned the install folder before to make sure no ultravnc.ini exists. On client side I did remove the entire %AppData%\UltraVNC folder to start the configuration from scratch.
No change: Server displaying "connection from ip..." message only, no matter if I provide a custom connect message or not.
But I had some breakthrough success disabling the encryption plugin. And suddenly I was presented the login message also when not using mslogon2 but plain password authentication. So somehow it only works if no encryption is enabled.
