Drag/Drop

9 posts in this topic

I recently purchased the basic version of your software so i would have access to the drag and drop feature but I am unable to figure out how to activate the feature. I uninstalled the old versions and installed synergy-v1.7.1-stable-366f813-Windows-x64 on both the server and client and logged in with my account. The server is running Windows 8 and the client is running Windows 7. Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated.

I too am equally clueless about how to enable drag 'n drop. I set to debug 1 and got the following error [code] DEBUG: failed to get drag file name from OLE DEBUG1: thread 0x00000414 exit [/code]

I have been a user for 2 years and have never been able to get the File Drag and Drop Feature to work. Some instruction and support on this would be helpful.

Same with me. I bought this software thinking that file drag and drop and clipboard would copy but no luck. I'm running Windows 8.1 on both computers though. I just found another software where the file drag and drop is very smooth and there's no jerkiness at all when you transition from one computer to another.

Drag & Drop files between computers sounds like a nice feature, can you share the url for software that allows that. Thanks

Thanks for nothing Tram? I'd really like my $10 back too. Rather pointless discovery but it does work when you try to drag something from the client to the server but not the other way around. Client>Server: works Server>Client: does not work (OLE BS)

No response from Synergy or Tram on this thread is very disappointing...

This conversation is a few months old but I'm posting here in case it helps anyone. Drag and drop after a certain file size (a little less than 1K) is affected by the SSL implementation, which has a maximum chunk size but leaves it to the apps to chunk the data. There will be a lot that works better for 1.7.4, some issues are fixed already in the latest nightly builds. Maybe try the most recent build? http://synergy-project.org/nightly https://github.com/synergy/synergy/issues/4584 - this is the most important bug for current drag-drop issues in Synergy 1.7.3 https://github.com/synergy/synergy/issues/4712 - relates mostly to 4584 but there are some interesting comments https://github.com/synergy/synergy/issues/4601 - relates mostly to 4584 but there are some interesting comments If your issue is not one of these, please provide some detailed info: - exact steps to reproduce including Synergy/OS versions on server/client - the size of the data that you are moving with drag-drop (exact size if you can find that out) - what was being dragged? (image file, file in Windows Explorer, text file on desktop, etc.) - any symptoms that occur such as Synergy crashing - is problem intermittent? - any non-English involved (keyboard config, characters in file name/path, etc.)? - with at least Debug logging level enabled, what is in the logs for server and client when there is a problem?
