[Solved] Can't configure server on Win10 after 04-March-17

Good afternoon!


I have a setup with 2 laptops and a desktop. Laptops are running Windows 10 Pro, Desktop is using Windows 8.1 Pro.


I bought and installed version 1.8.7 basic a week ago, using one of the laptops as server, and both the desktop and other laptop as clients. A few days ago I was offered the option to buy Pro version (with a discount :D ) and accepted. Updated my license info on all three machines only to see that the SSL encryption make my connection real slow. Disabled SSL and keep working. A couple of days ago connection between the computers started to become erratic. Mouse moved like 1/10th real speed, and keyboard reported one key press, skipped two, send one... I restarted all PC just to discover that Synergy won't function on the Windows 10 laptops. I installed version 1.8.8 today, with the same results. Server says that it has an 'invaild IPC message', then says 'watchdog status: error' and never starts waiting for connection.


I configured the other laptop as server, but I received the same results. Then I configured my Windows 8.1 desktop as server, and the laptops as clients and everithing works like a charm. Unfortunatedly, I need one of the laptops to be the server.


Anyone else having these problems? Someone knows what to do?


Thanks in advance!

Edit: After reading a few post in this thread I tried installing 32 bits version instead of 64 bits. Everything worked as it should be. The only update done to my system was the C++ 2008 Redist Package. I guess MS changed some interfase on their DLLs. If anyone knows something about this, keep us informed.
