Synergy 1.74 not working at all

6 posts in this topic

I can't get any of my clients to connect to the server at all on 1.74. I tried x86 and x64, nada. Switched back to 1.73 and it connects like a charm. Tried multiple reboots, etc. Windows 10

I have the same problem with 1.74 and Windows 10, a real train wreck. Seems to be OK with 1.73!

I just upgraded to version 1.7.4 using WIN 10 as server, WIN 8.1 as client. All is working pretty good so far. didn't have any issue installing either of them. The synergyD.exe process bug is gone and prior to installing 1.7.4 synergy had started just shutting down requiring restart of the service. That is gone now too. HOWEVER When on my SERVER (WIN 10) if "groove Music" is open and ACTIVE. I can't scroll on the CLIENT WIN 8.1 machine Wierd. If I click another window and make Groove music fall back, Scrolling resumes. Otherwise Working good so far

Greg do you have a Win10 client machine to test connecting to the server? I think Win10 -> Win10 is what's broken.

I'm getting no love from Win10 and a lot of interferance from a thing called Windows Shell Experience Host. It's not helping that's for sure.

Hi, I seem to have similar problems. I've just installed Synergy 1.74 to use as a method to share my main PC's screen, keyboard and mouse with a spare PC I have and use as a media storage device in essence. Both run W10 Home and both have synergy version 1.74 installed. Installation seemed to go ok as did configuration adding the client PC ok. However, when I move my mouse to the edge of the screen although the log suggests I'm leaving the server PC screen and the mouse disappears, the screen doesn't change to the Client PC's screen. When I move the mouse back the log says entering screen - see log entries below.

Running a dual monitor Windows 10 as server and a single monitor Windows 10 as client. Does anyone have any ideas?
