Hello beta testers,
Synergy 2 Beta is currently experiencing issues with the login system. We'll take a look at this after we release the next update for Synergy 1. Thanks for your patience while we resolve this issue.
In addition to copying and updating the synergy.conf file from c:\users\<username>\appdata\local\symless\synergy
I also needed to grab some registry keys from an existing system. I exported the following keys from my existing box and imported them on my new machine.
The only side effect is that Synergy is using the old machine name. For me that's fine as I'm decommissioning the old one.
