Bad Image error running msra.exe


Recommended Posts

Running 1.10.3 Pro on windows 10 v1903 and getting this error message when trying to load Windows Remote Assistance.  It says C:\Program Files\Synergy\synwinhk.dll is not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error.  I found another person who had an issue with a stardock application and they said they got it running by adjusting exploit settings: 

1) Open Settings
2) Goto Update and security
3) Pick Windows security and use the Open WIndows Security button
4) Pick app and browser control
5) Find Exploit protection and click exploit protection settings
6) Click program settings
7) Add a program, using by program name
8) Enter msra.exe and click add
9) Scroll down the list of options until you find "Disable extension points"
10) Tick override system settings and then slide it to ON
11) Apply and ensure msra.exe is not running via taskmanager

I tried this and it didnt work.  Anyone experience this?  I was using an old free synergy version for a long time but recently purchased pro after having some issues with my mac and catalina.
