Latest Beta - VMWare and WIndows not registering click

6 posts in this topic

Hi, Beta4 has reintroduced a bug,

I have 2 windows 10 machines. The second machine runs Ubuntu (17.04) within VMWare (Workstation 12 Player - Free version) within Windows (10).

The main host is the Windows machine with VMWare.

When I run VMWare full screen, and then go to the other machine, the system doesn't appear to be passing the clicks across.

This worked on 100% all the time on Beta3. It appears to be temperamental as in it worked on beta4 yesterday but not this morning. It doesn't work correctly in version 1.

I hope you can track this down.

VMWare must be in full screen mode. If it isn't the system works.

In Synergy 1, the core process runs as your user, same for beta3, but in beta4 it runs as admin. I wonder if this is related? Unfortunately, I have no workaround other than perhaps disabling the integrated mouse feature on VMware?

It seems temperamental as it's working now on beta4.

VMware and Synergy have a history of not playing nicely together. It's something we'd like to improve.
