Issue: Service start error on Windows

Nick Bolton

Recommended Posts

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).
