Service start error on Windows

8 posts in this topic

We are aware of an issue in Synergy 1.10.3 where the background service fails to start.

Service "Synergy" (synergy) failed to start. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services.

We suspect that this issue is caused by the installer not providing the correct VC++ redistributable.

Solution: Install the latest VC++ redistributable from Microsoft.

Please open a support ticket if you're still experiencing problems.

So what is the correct VC++ redistributable?
I am using Windows 10 home x64. Synergy installation synergy_1.10.3-stable_b126-ca35737a_windows-x64.msi.

I have MSVCR110.dll but also have MSVCR120 in SxS.

Let me know if I can help resolving this (I have some time).
