Ok, Set to Elevate.

I will let you know how it goes...

The Synergy icon does not appear in the Taskbar notifications tray...

Any suggestions regarding 'auto config'?

Does 'auto config' require Bonjour?

I have tried rebooting a couple of times now and it does seem to behave better... so far...

It is useful for machines that are connected to a network which only provides dynamic IP addresses. If you have reserved an IP address for your machines, it would be best to manually enter it. However there are a lot of changes that will be implemented on v2. Specially for the use of auto config feature. We just can't provide any ETAs for v2 yet.

As suggestion...

The windows dialog convention is to have a Close, Cancel or OK button in the lower right hand corner.
Synergy has a 'Stop' button in the lower right hand corner which makes stopping the application a normal occurrence.
I would recommend adding a 'Close' 'Cancel' or OK button in the lower right and corner and moving the Apply and Stop buttons to the left.
