Issues starting synergyc.exe on Windows as a service

Recommended Posts

Hi all,
I'm attempting to start Synergy v1.8.8 as a client at boot (before user login prompt) on a Windows 7 machine. I had originally added a service to execute the following at startup:

"C:\Program Files\Synergy\synergyc.exe" --name WINDOWS

This actually worked for a while, but not the service throws an error when I go to start it:

Windows could not start SynergyC on Local Computer. For more information, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vender, and refer to service-specific error code 3. 

Looking at the the Event Viewer:

The SynergyC service terminated with a service-specific error The system cannot find the path specified..

If i copy the command into command line, it runs fine without a hitch. This was working without a problem before and just stopped yesterday. Any tips on getting the client to run as service before the login screen?

Should that not be as follows

"C:\Program Files\Synergy\synergyc.exe" 

with the Add arguments section containing the --name ... you appended above. This is what immediately jumps out at me as why it may not be working as it cannot find that entire path as a executable.
