Windows 7: Does Synergy work in 7 RC?

Does Synergy work in 7 RC?

I'm using synergy on my Vista x64 install and I'm wondering does it work fine in Win7 x64 RC? If so, then that's really the only thing holding me from wiping Vista and going to 7 solo.

I just installed it. It does work.

It's like a virtual km switch that let's you control multiple computers with one keyboard/mouse. I've got it on my work Mac and PC so yay XD.

the only issue I have noticed with it is that it locks out the mouse & kb when you're installing programs on a windows 7 machine that is using another machine's hardware. You can circumvent this by decreasing the security settings but it still happens when you're installing microsoft software. anybody else notice this or found a fix?

--------------------------------------------------------- TLDR; I'm asking if anyone knows a fullproof way to fix my problem with Synergy (which has not been updated since 2006, I think) or knows of a program that works about the same as Synergy but is more compatible....
