Win 10 64 bit fails to install

2 posts in this topic

Just downloaded 1.8.8 and tried to install on a Windows 10 64 bit box.  It runs the installer just fine, but ultimately states that it cannot install the service and it fails.  This happens whether I run the MSI as admin, double click on it, or right click and go to "Install".  Is this a known issue?

I had tried looking into the 'Services' app for Synergy and if I found it start it up.  I found it and it was marked as "Disabled".  I could no re-enable it as the system would show a pop up telling me the service was marked for deletion.  I rebooted the machine and now I can run the 1.8.8 installer with no problems.  So it looks like there is some type of issue with the installer updating a previous install (I had 1.7.6 installed on this box before) when the service needed to be replaced.
