I am using VNC to connect to a remote computer.

There are time I need to boot to safe mode but then I do not have access to the cpu as it does not the start VNC setvice.

If I am at the computer In safe mode I can manually start it and it works fine.

How can I add that program to the list of services or programs loaded in XP Safe mode?

I've searched and couldn't find anything. Maybe I'm wrong but I don't believe you can. The whole purpose of safemode is it's a diagnostic tool to help troubleshoot issues. That's why it loads with just the bare necessities and drivers.

Dunno if it's the same in XP as in Vista - but here's the location in the Vista registry:

It's located in other places in the registry also - so be careful which one that you choose!

Dunno how successful you'll be in adding the VNC service - so I'd backup the registry just in case it won't boot correctly for you (and have a copy of the Recovery CD/BartPE/UBCD handy so you can restore it from there.
