I got the same in my log with my windows 10 64-bit server and my windows 7 64-bit client. When I downgraded to 1.8.2 it works fine again.

Hello, having two problems on latest macOS and windows 10,

server runs on macOS sierra, it crashed the first time but afterwards it started to work, but clients (booth ubuntu and windows 10) mouse is very jittery, goes on some wrong angle or jumps away (for eg. cant hit the wizard buttons - mouse jumps away...).

Another issue on windows 10, cannot enable the ssl plugin in the wizard, getting error message (even on complete uninstall):
Error: Failed to copy plugin 'ns.dll' to C:\..\AppData\Local\Synergy\Plugins\ns.dll
Unknown error
Please stop synergy and run the wizard again.

Did something change in the update process? i don't recall needing to have physical keyboard access to complete the upgrade before. This time, the install requires synergy to be stopped before the upgrade can continue.

This is on a client system running windows 7, 64bit

Figured out it had to do something with my home folder being "Fabijan Š" which I disliked also, after ruining windows while trying to change that to something normal, unfortunately windows restore point did not work as supposed, so formatted and installed clean windows 10 where home folder is one word with no special characters the two problems are solved (license key works, and also plugin installation works from wizard).

One new small issue I noticed on macOS while configuring key mappings for client, after I changed the first key (ctrl to meta) the config window moved back behind the main configuration window and could not be focused again, but draged it away to see the forms and completed the configuration...

Also HAd isues with Version 1.8.3. Was working fine with 1.8.2 Server is win10 -64 bit, Client was win7 -64 bit. After reading thread also found that on the Server the Use SSL emcription was greyed out. Do not know why or how to make it active. However noticed that the setting on the Client was using the SSL.
Unchecking the SSL on client made it work.

I would rather use SSL but it does not seem to be an option at this stage.

SIGH!! I'm beginning to dread Synergy Releases. Last update took me 2 hours to get Linux Server/Win7 Client connecting. This time it took 3 hours. Had to uninstall, re-install, run wizards on both machines and only then did the fingerprint display correctly and client to server connection occurred.

Saw the post about running the Wizard on both machines again that helped.

BTW ....

Although fixes supposed to include fixing UAC causing disconnect, on my Win7 machine a disconnect still happens when UAC displayed. Also, clipboard sharing can still be inconsistent at times.

Not seeing issue with SSL setting greyed out others seem to be having.

I am having issues with the clipboard on both Windows 7 and Mac OSx Sierra.

It is not working....

[2016-10-04T15:39:47] ERROR: ssl error occurred (system call failure)
[2016-10-04T15:39:47] ERROR: eof violates ssl protocol
[2016-10-04T15:39:47] ERROR: failed to accept secure socket

Please let me know when it is fixed, I am using a Ubuntu 16 as server, and Windows 10 & Ubuntu 16 as clients.
Not working is unacceptable, and advertising paid while I was trying to get some support did not make me feel better.

It was working perfectly with previous version.

is anyone from synergy planning on addressing this? I am starting to regret giving up money for this.

I just 'upgraded' from 1.8.2 to 1.8.3 - and now nothing works... no connection between systems... and massive errors... and to get support I have to PAY FOR IT? I've wasted the last 3 hours f'ing around with this new version - that's $900.00 down the drain... how about you pay me for that?
