Hi all,

I have had this problem since half a year ago, my Client is Mac OS 10.12 Sierra, and my server is Win10 newest. Both running synergy 1.10.0

I normally do not turn off my Mac but I do turn of my PC.

At night when I do turn off my PC in this case at about half past 2, my mac client goes crazy, and in the morning I check the computer, this repeating log will come up (https://pastebin.com/T5gp7eYi) saying:

and this prompt will come up and say (The executable ... could not be started, although it does exist) (same as this ref image: https://symless.com/forums/topic/3064-the-executable-could-not-be-started-although-it-does-exist/)

 

P.S. I have read a few other posts and I only could find remedies such as this

For anyone out there who might stumble across this thread, here's the solution:

  • Exit Synergy
  • Open Terminal
  • "rm ~/Library/Preferences/com.http-symless-com.Synergy.plist" then hit Enter
  • "rm -rf ~/Library/Synergy/" Enter
  • "killall -u $USER cfprefsd" and again Enter
  • Restart Synergy

apple script

Quote

set appName to "Synergy"

tell application appName to quit

repeat

tell application "System Events"

if appName is not in (name of application processes) then exit repeat

end tell

do shell script "sleep 0.5"

end repeat

tell application appName to launch

The deleting plist thing doesn't help and while the apple script does help me relaunch the service easier, this happens every single day.

I am also not sure if I could ask about errors on this forum board, but please help ><

thanks in advance for the time
