Can't open Synergy Pro from Symlinked Application Folder


Recommended Posts

I'm experiencing the same thing as the thread at the bottom, but did not have the option to reply to it.

OSX (Sierra) user.  My applications folder contains nearly a terabyte of data, more than I wish to keep on my root, so I use a soft symlink from a directory /Volumes/Large/Applications to /Applications.

A popup appears saying "Please drag Synergy to the Applications folder, and open it from there." after updating to the latest stable (1.8.8)

I did find a workaround, by moving the Synergy.app folder from /Applications to /bin (sudo mv /Applications Synergy.app /bin) and opening the application from that location.  It would help to update the popup text to state "Please drag Synergy to a folder on your system volume and open it from there" or some such.
