I'd like to drive my sister and her husband a little crazy by using TouchPad Pro to mess with their desktop a little bit. Is it necessary to install something like TightVNC in order to get it up and running? I'd like not to have any programs running in their taskbar that might give the game away.

Thanks in advance!

Yeah, you have to have a VNC program running on the target computer.

yes, you'll need a server running on the machine. I use Vine server on my Mac, haven't tried any for PC, but I imagine they are just as easy to use. You'll be able to easily hide anything in the "tray" by setting the tray properties for the app to hidden; however, once the server is running you'll still be able to see the app if you minimize it. You might be able to find a freeware application like this to achieve that. http://tray-minimize.qarchive.org/

AND then once in the tray, hide using the "tray" settings for the app. ^

Sounds like fun :cool:

couldn't you just light a bag of your own poop on fire and put it on their doorstep or something?

Really, you have to run a server on Windows? All you have to do on the Mac, is enable Screen Sharing is System Preferences.
