Flaky connection, duplicate service.

I'm running Synergy 1.10.0-stable on Windows 10.  In fact, I just freshly re-installed it again this morning to try (and fail) to overcome my issue.

My Mac Client  will be stable for days, and then go into a state where it fails to connect to the server over and over again.  But the strange observations are on the server-side on Windows:

I have two `synergys.exe` processes running (two separate PIDs, but same exact arguments):

  • 1 synergyd.exe
  • 1 synergy.exe (when I have the client open)
  • 2 synergys.exe -f --no-tray --debug INFO --name XXX -- ipc --stop-on-desk-switch --enable-drag-drop --profile-dir "XXX" -c "XXX" --address :24800 --serial-key XXX

In the log file, I see normal activity, following by a complaint about a "-c" argument, and even more errors that I think are the two synergys.exe processes conflicting for resources:

My last attempt to get it to work (before this re-install), ) ended up removing _my_ permissions to synergys.exe and it seemed to stop the duplicate process from appearing, but it would still sometimes flake out.
