Modifier keys (Shift/Ctrl/Alt/Win) not working in Parallels

5 posts in this topic

Server: Windows 10 Pro, fully patched

Client: MacOS, latest version

Synergy version 1.8.8

Shift/Ctrl/Alt/Windows keys do not work when running Parallels on the Mac (with a Windows 10 Pro VM). Modifiers work fine on the Mac itself, just not in the VM. In order to use the VM effectively (e.g. entering in a password with special characters, entering an email address, etc) I have to plug in a physical keyboard to the Mac.

Bump. This happens to me too, but in RDP sessions... A fix would be awesome, Synergy is basically useless if Shift doesn't work. :-/

I have the same problem with V1.8.8 . Windows 7 server and iMac client on  el capitan OSX running Parallels. 

I downgraded to v1.8.5 on the server and no joy. I downgraded the client as well to 1.8.5  and and it seems to work fine now.
