Mac OS 10.10.3 and SynergyPro1.7.2

Despite giving access to systems information, Synergy will not open. No message. The icon appears briefly on one machine, then immediately disappears. On the other machine, it repeatedly asks for access to Preferences, shows that Synergy has access, and then doesn't work. Any suggestions?

Hi Alice, It sounds like Synergy is auto-hiding. What OS are you on? Thanks, Nick

Hi Jorn, What's the filename of the dmg you're using? About auto hide, you can disable this in Settings. Thanks, Nick

Hi Nick, Installed dmg version is: synergy-v1.7.2-stable-728e9cd-MacOSX1010-x86_64 Settings menu (in Synergy program) not accessable due to not possible to start the program. When trying to run the program, the icon appears briefly on one machine, then immediately disappears. I have not tried to uninstall end re-install yet. Maybe there is an updated version? Thanks, Jorn

Hi, Problem solved. You need to enable Synergy in System Prefrences > Securety & Privacy > Accessibility (See picture) Regards Jørn Norway
