Mouse buttons not working after initial connection

3 posts in this topic

I have Synergy 1.7.6 on Windows 10 (server) & Windows 8.1 (client), Swiss-German keyboard. When I boot the server & client, and it doesn't seem to matter which starts first, I find that both mouse buttons are blocked and I have to restart the server. The keyboard works, and mouse-over responds, only the buttons are blocked. It happens every time. Is this known?

Also having this issue. Mouse clicks just no longer pass through. Tried to troubleshoot it for a few days, but found no permanent solution. Had to uninstall and go with a working alternative for the moment. Nothing changed in my settings, used it for years across multiple PC/Network solutions. I blame recent MS updates. Hoping a fix is found soon!

actually reading my post I maybe wasn't very clear. When I said I had to restart the sever I meant Synergy, not the PC. After that left/right buttons work until the next reboot.

I have the same problems. I've got Windows 10 on both server/client and after booting up both systems initially mouse works fine the first time (even mouse clicks). But when I get back to my server pc and start my vmware workstation I don't get any clicks on my client working. When I close my vm and restart server, then again it works fine (maybe some minutes or hours). Then again it stops working correctly. :( So during a day it stops working correctly several times as long as I restart the server again. Under Windows 7 I never had this problem. Even with Windows 7 (server) and Windows 10 (client) it worked, let's say ok (there I had similar problems but only when clicking on system dialog windows on my client). I hope this issue will be fixed soon!
