When I try to save and use my configuration, I get this error message when Synergy starts.

NOTE: config file: C:/Program Files/Synergy/synergy.sgc
NOTE: log level: NOTE
synergys.exe: unrecognized option 'Files/Synergy/synergy.sgc'
Try 'synergys.exe --help' for more information.

It seems to only work if Configure Interactively is selected.

Using Synergy 64-bit, version 1.4.12 on Windows 7

[EDIT] There is an issue when using spaces on the config file path.

Had to install to c:\Synergy and then save my config file without spaces in the name to work around this. Using version 1.4.10.

There seems to be another problem when using numbers on screen names.

I was having some trouble like this so I switched to the last stable version, 1.3.8 ( Some features are missing but everything is working fine now.
