Bug #480 - Software installers cause loss of control.
Google user: Brian.G.Levin
After I install synergy plus as a client, when I go to install other
software, the mouse disappears. I am unable to continue with the software
install until I close the installer. The mouse is able to leave and return
to the server machine, however it never takes control of the client
machine. The only way to rectify the issue is to attach a mouse and close
or finish the installation.
This also seems to happen when I open cmd and when I run device manager.
My server machine is Ubuntu 10.04 x64. My client machine is Windows 7 x64.
I am running synergy plus 1.3.5 x64 on both. I have tried, with the same
result, the 32 bit on Windows 7. I have attached a screencast of the issue
and two sets of logs. One a debug level 1 and one a debug level 2. Please
let me know if there is anything else I can include.
In the screen cast, I start with using synergy plus to start the paint.net
installer. I lose mouse control. I then attach a mouse to the client
machine and retake control.
Sorry, not really sure what this issue is talking about. Could be a UAC issue? Try using 1.4.x Windows service feature.
