Windows 10 Auto start VNC Server

I wish to use vnc server 'headless' on a windows 10 pc, i.e without KB/Mouse/Monitor due to space restrictions. what i would like is that when windows 10 reboots and gets to the initial PIN entry screen, for VNC server to have already started so i can connect to it and use my main PC to enter the PIN. - can i do this? my initial test after rebooting gave me an error message and didnt do it, so i manually logged in then started VNC server and it worked, but maybe i didnt give it enough time for a service to automatic, im not sure. any help or info appreciated as im struggling to find a proper answer about this on the web.

Thanks

Bob

  • This should work with the VNC Server service set to automatic start. I connect to remote computers (running various versions of Win 10) that aren't logged in all the time. You might try connecting to the computer in question remotely via the computer management MMC (compmgmt.msc) to check the status of the VNC Server service on that computer. If it's not running/starting, maybe you can find something in the event logs to figure out why.

  • Hi Jim

    thanks for the reply, i dont know what's happened but i have'nt done anything that i can figure out (except the usual windows updates ~) and it all now seems to be working great and as expected/wanted. The VNC server is indeed set to start automatically, so i'm not sure what i was doing wrong before but hey-ho, one less problem for me !!

    regards

    Bob
