TightVNC Server Only

We would like to install only TightVNC Server on our Clients, since only administrators require Viewer. So far only "Viewer only" is available for install & update. Thank you very much. (ADDLOCAL=Server)

    Hi Andrew, thank you for your reply. I am bit confused though, since I guess almost every enterprise would have the need for rather "Server only" and "Server + Viewer", since Viewer is, at least in our company, exclusively used for admin/servicing purposes, giving it like a 1000:1 ratio. But I do of course understand not wanting to bloat the catalog.

    Our goal when we added the viewer only was to allow the choice without bloating the catalog a ton. We figured having the option between Server+Viewer or just Viewer gives the flexibility required, and that having the viewer installed on the server was not impactful enough to warrant 2 additional products being added to the catalog. Marking as a no-go.
