Synergy stops AHK working

3 posts in this topic

I have an AutoHotKey script for entering a couple of unicode characters which I find useful. Currently mapped to Alt+NumpadDiv and Alt+Shift+NumpadDiv. I've noticed that neither work (and in fact, in limited testing, no AHK hotkeys work) after booting, _until_ I stop and restart synergy. This is Synergy 1.7.4 Server running on Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit, but I've noticed the problem before 1.7.4. AHK is 1.1.16.05.

AHK is a known software conflict with synergy. However, sometimes starting up the software packages in a different order can help.

I used to have an occasional problem with AutoHotKey stopping working and needing to restart Synergy to get things back to normal. However since update to 1.7.6 this is now happening frequently. I now need to restart Synergy every time after the PC's boot up, 1 x Windows 8.1 and 1 x Windows 7, and at several occasions during each day. When AHK is frozen out like this, although I can mouse over to my second PC screen, double clicking on anything will not give any result. I hope this gets fixed in the next update as it is very frustrating.
