Synergy 2 Basic was working, now it has stopped working

18 posts in this topic

Program was working great (in spite the lack of any options or settings).  Then I overclocked my other PC, and flashed the bios.  I'm back in windows but it doesn't have both computers displayed anymore.  I reinstalled Synergy 2 basic ver 2.0.6 on both pcs.  still doesn't work.   The other pc is connected to the internet just fine (the one I overclocked).  the only other thing I changed was I installed malwarebytes on it.  But I have uninstalled it since.  

Every once in a while on both the Synergy 2 config panels it said something about unable to run background service.  Anyways... i'm signed in to symless on both pcs... not sure what to do at this point.  Installation and setup was easy the first time.  But now not sure what to do to trouble shoot being that there are literally no options in the config.  

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Maybe uninstall again?  CClean registry and restart then reinstall?  thanks.

Having the same issue.

Windows 10 x64 updated to latest version on 2 computers.

Both displaying the same message about being unable to run the background process.

Previous version 2.0.5 was working (more or less, constant timeouts with same setup)

same issue.

I (try to) use it at work.

They didn't understand how usefull it would be to have a config without internet. Like 1.x versions.

Shame.

If you press the ~  (tilde key) when you're in the config, it shows a log file.    Also if you go to C:\ProgramData\Symless\Synergy\synergy-combined.log you can see the errors.   (ProgramData is a hidden folder you have to change those folder options to see it.)

 

Anyways... glad I'm not the only one having a problem.  I though I royally #(@# something.  I see in the logs there is an authentication system, and they must be having some server errors on their side.

I had this issue just now, with upgrading to 2.0.6. It seems resolved now, by completely reinstalling Synergy in both computer.

Seems to be working now. Judging by the logs there was an issue connecting to their AWS server.

Had the same problem. I was trying to figure it out for an hour or so. It suddenly started to work without me changing anything. Must have been their servers.

Yea, and this event really showcases why. Fortunately, they've already stated that offline-mode will be available in 2.1, which they are working on.

Is there a server service status page? if not there really need to have one.

Looking forward to that. It works great for the most part, but using it at work these little issues can be annoying sometimes.

Solved the issue after restarting and reinstalling.
