TigerVNC is a high-performance, platform-neutral implementation of VNC (Virtual Network Computing), a client/server application that allows users to launch and interact with graphical applications on remote machines. TigerVNC provides the levels of performance necessary to run 3D and video applications, and it attempts to maintain a common look and feel and re-use components, where possible, across the various platforms that it supports. TigerVNC also provides extensions for advanced authentication methods and TLS encryption.

To install TigerVNC, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install tigervnc

To upgrade TigerVNC, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:
