Invalid VNC server error specified

Asked By 7060 points N/A Posted on -


I recently migrated to ultra vnc from winvnc. I uninstalled winvnc and deleted the installed directory, after that I restarted the computer. Later I have installed ultra vnc. Now I can use the viewer to load vnc but when I try to save the connection and later on I try to open the connection through file that I have created its giving me the error. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the beta and stable versions but still I am getting the same error. After installation it is showing all the histories of previous connections. Even though it is a fresh installation. Maybe due to something in registry not cleared properly?

Ensure that you removed the WInVNC service completely. Remove it from the Programs and Features under the Control Panel and then click the Start button and then type Services.msc on the search box. Check if it is not listed on the installed services. If it still listed, you can click on Start and then type CMD on the search box and press enter. Type "sc delete ServiceName". Just change the ServiceName with the name of the WinVNC service that appears when it is still listed on the installed services and then press the enter key.

Try to reinstall also your UltraVNC and ensure that you check the option to associate it with the .vnc extension. Download it from the link below:
