Does Windows XP work with Synergy 2?

5 posts in this topic

Hey Guys,

My friend asked me if I could test compatibility with Windows XP for him before he purchased Synergy as he needs XP for some old applications. I spun up a virtual machine in order to test and I found that while the 32-bit installer for Synergy 2 runs, it fails to start the services. Upon further investigation I found that the executables were "not a valid Win32 application." Does this mean that XP is unsupported? or is it a bug with the installer?.

Windows XP isn't supported right now, but we're considering to add support in 2.1 or 2.2 (maybe). 

Do you need a refund?

Ah okay cool, if you add support again that would be awesome! Can I ask what Windows OS's the 32-bit & 64-bit releases do support?

Nah I don't need a refund, this was just a test for a friend, I still use Synergy for other purposes. Is it possible we can still get access to Synergy 1 Pro? I didn't purchase it but for those who own Synergy 2, it might be good to have access to Synergy 1 if we need it. As it has more features, I'm going to have to wait till Synergy v2.1/2.2 till the features I use become available (Relative mouse moves, screen switching/locking hotkeys, offline activation & the ability to set a specific server IP).

Presumably Vista/7 and up, since I know for sure 7 works and Vista is kind of similar, although I'm not sure. I'm going to edge on the side of Vista, but for sure Windows 7 if Vista is not supported yet.

@Nick Bolton, do you have a System Requirements page? If not, that'd be helpful. :P

Email [email protected] and they'd be more than happy to grant you a copy of Synergy 1, although as a person that's not a member of the Synergy team but has received confirmation that they will grant you Synergy 1, I cannot guarantee that it will be of the Pro variety.

Awesome! The Synergy team is working day and night on it, and we hope you enjoy the fruits of their labor when it becomes available!

That would actually be really helpful to have, I couldn't seem to find one and was one of the reasons that led me to posting.

Sweet! Thanks for the tip, I'll get right on that :)
