Home Application Network Apps Synergy error - Failed to save configuration: Access is denied

Synergy software is well known utility for sharing keyboard and mouse while using two or more logo_Synergy.gifcomputers at the same time. I love this software rather than using KVM switches... try this it is really handy software. By the way, today I got weird error message while I was configuring Synergy software.  I couldn't save my configuration and kept on getting below message.

" Failed to save configuration: Access is denied "


I tried reinstalling the Synergy software, but I got same message again.

I was wondering why I am getting this message, b/c I am administrator of device I am installing Synergy software ????.

I have researched Internet, but no luck to find any solution. I knew somehow Synergy configuration is locked out, but don't know how to resolve it. However, once get into it, it won't that hard. Here is resolution for you.

1. Open a search tools from start> on window option, put "Synergy.sgc" and okay to start searching.
