I'm not able to share keyboard and mouse between Windows 7 and Windows XP. I am using Windows 7 as synergy server and a Windows XP as synergy client. Both OS are 32-bit. On both machines auto start option is set to "when computer starts".
If, on windows 7, I set the auto start option to "when you log in" everything works fine.
I have tried this with both synergy 1.3.8 and 1.4.8 and the results are same for both the version of Synergy.
Please use the latest version in service mode.

I'm using 1.4.10 (in service mode) and facing another issue. The configuration is same.
When I lock the computers, mouse and hence keyboard sharing stops working. I have to use key board attached to the client (Win XP) machine to first unlock it and then sharing starts again.
I have selected "Automatically start server/client" and "Hide when server/client starts" in the settings.

I'm having the same problem as SBhandari. When the screen locks, my server says I'm still connected to my XP box, but I can't move my mouse from the server into the locked XP client to unlock it... This worked fine when I used the older version of Synergy on the client... maybe I need to switch back to that way again?....
