What are people saying about ShareMouse - Mouse and Keyboard Sharing Software

Amit If I want to connect 4 networked computers - I need 4 licenses - thats just too expensive. the policy needs an amendment.

Bartels Media GmbH Thank you for your interest in ShareMouse. Thanks to BdJ, you will get ShareMouse for as low as USD $10 per computer. This is a 60% discount!

ShareMouse is suitable for a wide range of users, starting from home/small-office users with only two computers up to professional stock trader setups with 4-8 computers or enterprise level multi-computer control room environments with 20 or more computers.

ShareMouse boasts totally unique features, such as file drag & drop between Windows and Mac OSX and many more. We believe that licensing per computer is fair as the benefit for professional users is exponential with every additional computer. At the same time, home/small-office users have the opportunity to enjoy the same professional ShareMouse technology at a bar gain price.

If software is offered at any price, a few people comment that it would be too expensive, others will be happy as the software is exactly what they were looking for. And indeed, there are people who say, that they would have paid even twice as much because they appreciate the flawless way, ShareMouse works, the quick email responses, excellent technical support and continuous product updates over the time.

ShareMouse is available at a price that allows us keeping the quality and service as you can expect from Sharemouse and perhaps already experienced.

Try ShareMouse and see for yourself. It will take less than a minute for you to find that it is well worth the money.

NotesTracker - Tony Austin At about 1:08 on the video it says "The best thing is, ShareMouse is free for personal use."
Please elucidate.

Also, how does it compare with Windows Remote Desktop Connection, pros and cons?
Nov 13 2012 at 5:57am Copy Link

Bartels Media GmbH Windows Remote Desktop serves a different purpose: It shows the desktop of a remote computer on your local screen and you can "dive" into that window to remote control that remote system.

However, the remote screen occupies local desktop real-estate.

ShareMouse is designed to be used with multiple computers side-by-side and you can seamlessly move the mouse cursor between all monitors of all computers. Please watch the video demo that explains it better than words.

Peter Dr Can you have dual monitors on one of the computers, and still share keyboard/mouse on one of the two monitors? For example:on monitor 1 share 3 computers (as per the video) but on the Main PC computer (for example) have dual monitors?

Bartels Media GmbH We are happy to confirm, that each computer may have multiple monitors. This is a specialty of ShareMouse. You can actually try ShareMouse within a minute with the demo version before making a purchase decision.

PortablesFan to Tony Austin: their freeware usage policy is here:
http://www.keyboard-and-m...eeware.htm

"We give away ShareMouse free-of-charge to all users except Power and Professional Users"

Below are their definitions of a power/pro user; the program will check your system/setup, and meeting any one of these conditions is supposed to automatically put the program into demo mode instead of freeware:
- Use with more than two computers.
- Use with a total of more than two monitors.
- Use with a Server OS.
- Presence of a domain controller in the local network.
- Use of software which is typically used in professional environments only (Adobe professional software, AutoCad, SAP, etc.).
- Professional/Commercial use is also considered whenever the user receives financial benefit from his work (salary, wages, commission, revenue, etc.).

Richard Andersen Machine A: XP Pro 32 SP3, machine B: Windows 7 64, both fully updated. Both machines have identical hardware except for RAM and harddisks. Monitor A 1920x1200, monitor B 1280x1024.

I couldn't get this program to work at first, mouse just kept jumping to the center of the screen when I moved it to the right of the screen on machine A (the one with the mouse and keyboard).

Then I shut down ShareMouse to restart it, and noticed the Diagnostic Mode. That worked, however it crashed my Avast AIS antivirus/firewall program (version 6x). It's extremely rare that Avast crashes, so I'm quite sure it was ShareMouse that did it.

After a reboot however (only way to get Avast running again), it seemed to work OK (I assume ShareMouse starts in Normal mode when Windows boots?).

Then I tried to open the Settings dialog on machine B to check the Keyboard Shorcuts. I tried to close the dialog clicking on the red X in the upper right corner, that made SmartMouse crash however (at first I thought the machine had frozen, but it shut down normally when I pressed the power button - I had removed it from the KVM so that was the only option).

Otherwise it looks like a really great program that solves some problems I have with my KVM, so I'll keep working with it for the rest of the day and see how it behaves.

BTW, a suggestion: it's easy to accidently hit the edge of the screen so it shifts monitor, if you're using the vertical scrollbar on a maximized program. When you do that however the left mouse button is pressed, so the problem might be solved with an option that prevents it from shifting monitor as long as the left button is pressed.

Bartels Media GmbH ShareMouse certainly does not compromize certain programs. You may want to report such issue to the vendor of the crashing program. ShareMouse just uses a local network connection to transmit mouse/keyboard input between the computers. “Security” programs (such as an “Antivirus” or “AntiSpyware” scareware) may also react on the "keyboard hook" that is required to read and send keyboard input.

Richard Andersen I'm actually able to reproduce the ShareMouse crash on machine B when I click the red X on the Settings dialog. It happens when I use the mouse on machine A. Mouse pointer freezes and the network connection between the programs seem to break when that happens, so the program no longer works (can't shift monitors). Clicking the OK or Cancel buttons doesn't seem to cause any problems though, using the A mouse.

I have however tried to connect machine B to the KVM again, and I'm actually able to click OK or Cancel on the dialog of the "crashed" program with the mouse on machine B, and if I do that, the program seems to start working normally again, without having to restart it.

Funny problem, but no one will probably notice it unless they use the red X to close the dialog.

bvssunnydale Hi, I'm a cpu tech and this program would be very useful because two cpus frequently sit on my desk. I do see that the license is transferable to other cpus but I have a question about process. I assume that I'd use add/remove programs to remove it from the laptop I'd be currently working on and then notify your company of the removal (or this would automatically be done over the web), then I'd simply install the program on the next laptop. Since I'm faced with this situation at least several times a month - even occasionally several times a day - is this difficult or time-consuming to achieve (according to the terms of the license it should be allowed if I purchase a couple licenses but I want to make sure it doesn't cause any problems in actual practice). Thanks very much for your help.

Bartels Media GmbH @bvssunnydale: Why not run ShareMouse from a portable USB thumb drive? You can stick it in and use it everywhere without license issues. Please learn more at http://manual.keyboard-an...ng.com#usb

@Frank: Please try software BEFORE making statements about it.

We knew about all the "alternatives" and wouldn't have bothered investing more than 2 man-years of development if those would be "just as good".

Please just try ShareMouse and you will quickly find out why we made it. No other product on the market provides the mix of cross-platform Mac and Windows support, zero-config seamless monitor positioning, drag & drop of multiple files, bidrectional functionality, multi-monitor support, a portable option, etc.

Gerard Booth Hello, Gunnar.

very impressed with sharemouse, I am already a licenced user of your excellent Phraseexpress software and sharemouse is to the same high quality standard. I have a question about the licencing. I am just about to upgrade my two machines to Windows 8, if I install two licences on these machines now, will the licence transfer to the same machines when I update the OS to Win 8.
I ask because of your one installation per footprint policy. When I update the OS I assume the footprint will change also.

P.s I tried 'Mouse without borders' could not get it to work for more than a couple of minutes without a reboot. ShareMouse worked flawlessy without any tinkering at all.

Richard Andersen When I'm playing the demo video on your website (or any YouTube video) in fullscreen mode in IE, on the PC with the keyboard/mouse, and move the mouse to the other PC, the mouse is chopping so it's more or less useless. As soon as I shift the video to normal viewing mode the mouse works allright again. Video quality doesn't matter, it's the same with HD and 360p. In Firefox it drops out of fullscreen mode as soon as I move the mouse to the other PC.

Internet connection is 20 mBit, network Gigabit and PCs (XP 32 and Win 7 64) are reasonably fast with Quad CPUs and 4/8 GB RAM.

Also, I cannot get drag/drop to work (is checked under Settings), is there anything special you should do here?

Jim Ranson The product will not allow me to use the USB version for more than a couple of minutes on two computers a Win7x64 w 2 monitors and a WIn8 box with one monitor. Is this normal behavoir?

The product also suffers the same problem when one runs an application that causes UAC to pop up on the screen. The mouse is unusable ie it locks up. I wind up having to use a physically attached mouse to click on the OK button on the UAC window.

Sukru Boztepe I am trying your software with a pair of Mac Lion (single monitor) and Win XP (dual monitor).

When I move the mouse from Mac to PC cursor disappears from the Mac, which is expected. However, when I move it from PC to Mac PC still has the cursor moving as I control the the Mac.

This is confusing as I see two cursors moving in two different screen. Is this normal? or I need to do something to fix it?

PortablesFan Hi,
Given your answer to bvssunnydale above, it sounds like the USB-install would also be my best option onto two USB drives. If a USB drive should fail such that I am unable to de-register it (http://www.keyboard-and-m...#uninstall), are you able to clear that registration so I can move the license to a working drive instead?

If I have the Windows and Mac versions both on the same USB drive, can both be registered with the same license simultaneously? Obviously if it's only one drive, both versions will not be used concurrently, it will by definition be one or the other. And the program(s) will be on only 1 device. So "licensing per device" sounds like this should be do-able, yes?
(*this question added on edit*)

That section of your manual which talks about de-registering a license seems potentially at odds with your policy stated here at BdJ: "1 installation per [hardware] footprint" - Does this mean one cannot re-install ShareMouse after reloading their computer?

Another clarification on the policy stated here at BdJ: "Upgrades to future versions of the software will require additional payment." - does this mean that, say, users had to pay to upgrade from 1.0.86 to 1.0.91? Or is it instead closer to the traditional "major version numbers" discounted upgrade charge (as stated on http://www.keyboard-and-m...om/faq.htm)?

In the Manual (http://www.keyboard-and-m...manual.php), under "Encryption," I just noticed it says that "Encryption does not include clipboard synchronization and files that are transferred via drag & drop." So, is the user's real-time mouse and keyboard activity the only stuff that's encrypted? (I've got to admit, encryption for the file/data transfer was one of the MAIN reasons I was interested in this, as I have not found that in a similar app. You may want to make that disclaimer a bit more visible, if still true, so that customers do not have a false sense of security.)

Thank you!

PortablesFan @ Gunnar - I figured it was probably the time zone diff., but it was just kinda unfortunate timing with the end of yesterday's BdJ coming up - esp. when my internet died for 15 minutes starting at 10 min. 'til! So I was very glad to see the 1-day extension, so that I still have a chance at this. :-) Thanks!

I had edited my earlier comment, so maybe you didn't see the questions I added later:

If I have the Windows and Mac versions both on the same USB drive, can both be registered with the same license simultaneously? Obviously if it's only one drive, both versions will not be used concurrently, it will by definition be one or the other. And the program(s) will be on only 1 device. So "licensing per device" sounds like this should be do-able, yes?

In the Manual (http://www.keyboard-and-m...manual.php) under "Encryption," I just noticed it says that "Encryption does not include clipboard synchronization and files that are transferred via drag & drop."
The response at http://www.phraseexpress....15&t=10413 was "No, this traffic is not encrypted. Files and clipboard transfer must be initiated by a ShareMouse user, so other users on the network do not automatically see all your clipboard contents and such."
So, is the user's real-time mouse and keyboard activity the only stuff that's encrypted? (I've got to admit, encryption for the file/data transfer was one of the MAIN reasons I was interested in this, as I have not found that, nor portability, in a similar app. You may want to make that disclaimer a bit more visible, if still true, so that customers do not have a false sense of security about file/clipboard transfers.) Couldn't someone else on my same network, for example, packet-sniff unencrypted information, even without their needing to use ShareMouse at all?

Thanks, Gunnar. Glad you got to catch some sleep somewhere in there! :-)

Bartels Media GmbH @PortablesFan: "If I have the Windows and Mac versions both on the same USB drive, can both be registered with the same license simultaneously?"

Tricky question. Our dev says, it should be possible but we never tried.


Couldn't someone else on my same network, for example, packet-sniff unencrypted information, even without their needing to use ShareMouse at all?

It would be extremely difficult. A spy would need to reverse-engineer the ShareMouse protocol and to sniff the exact portion of traffic. If you have a passion for tin-foil hats, you may want to use a dedicated network connection to securely prevent listening.


You may want to make that disclaimer a bit more visible

The scope of encryption is mentioned in the corresponding manual section: http://manual.keyboard-an...encryption

Now a great upgrade would be to complete what the physical KVM switch does: have two computers able to share a single monitor as well as the mouse and keyboard..

Loco Driver Normally I run my system with my user ID logged in as Administrator mode. Other users on my network may be in normal user mode although there is another user who normally uses an Administrator account.

The following statement is in your manual:
"ShareMouse must be launched with normal user rights to support Drag & Drop. Drag & Drop does not work if ShareMouse is launched with administrative privileges."

Does this mean that I can't use the product unless I create a non-admin user account for myself?

Phred E I understand how commercial imperatives work and that you implement the registration system so that you know where your software is installed; you can control it, somewhat - but if your business closes or is bought and this product is deprecated, I expect that the registration system would fail. Would we be left without fully-functional software, unable to register or de-register it in real-time, as we do now?
What dead-man-switch measures have you in place for such an outcome?
Thanks.

Software Geek Sorry, looks cool but still dont get it.

You say "You need to register each ShareMouse installation to disable the trial period." "You need a license per computer. If you have two computers, you need two licenses."

It doesnt seem like it would be useful at all with only one computer. This software has to be installed on at least two computers to work. Ive never heard of such strange licensing. What good would just one license be. So if one license is absolutely worthless why not just make a price for two computers. Makes absolutely no sense to me.

And besides Microsoft's Mouse without borders is a free download and there is nothing on their site that says you have to purchase anything in fact there is no purchase option at all on their site.

Jeff Titamer Comparing this to Stardock's Program this would cost too much for the number of computers I have. I would want a copy for each one since I often switch computers around. Also there is the Free Input Director program that I use now but it has no file transfer like this one. I'm wanting to upgrade to one that provides file sharing also but I would rather it be licensed for my home network rather than each computer. Stardock's program is my choice unless this could be changed and have a license to cover my network no matter how many computers I put it on. I currently have 4 running and another one that needs repairs. That would be $50 on sale price. Sorry but the $39 from Stardock for all my computers is more tempting. It also has a feature to share sound system of any of the computers hooked up.

This isn't - or at least shouldn't be - terribly surprising. The whole point of UAC is to prevent unauthorized access to the computer...and remote access from another computer most certainly qualifies as unauthorized. Turn the UAC settings down. Or, better yet, turn UAC off...it's been known since about day 3 of Vista that UAC has to be turned off in order to have a useable computer.

Bartels Media GmbH @Software Geek: We have thought a lot about how to license ShareMouse and hope that you agree to our considerations:

* Selling per computer makes it easier for users of a 5 computer setup to purchase the desired number of license in one straight procedure. This would not be possible if we would , for example, offer a two computer license “starter pack”.

Of course, we could offer single license “extension packs” but we believe that it would make things more complicated than necessary as it would require purchasing two items (the starter pack plus the desired number of additional computer licenses).

* We also could have offered a flat license for a certain number of computers. However, there always would be a customer, who would complain that it doesn’t cover his setup of just one additional computer.

* Please also keep in mind that the required level and complexity of support is exponential with the number of computers involved. We have to reflect this in our pricing in order to maintain the quality of support we wish to provide.

* Registering per computer actually is very easy to understand and straight forward. Three computers, three licenses. five computers, five licenses.

Loco Driver I'm sorry to complain. I'm retired now (limited income) but I used to work for a major computer firm in Silicon Valley, supporting our customers and our Software Engineers. What I'm trying to say is that I'm aware of all the work that goes into creating a software product -and supporting it afterwards.

FLAME ON...

You guys purchase Microsoft products costing hundreds of dollars, per licence. Adobe wants $500 - per license - for their PDF package. A decent graphics package can cost you a thousand bucks - plus more for add-ons. So, here's this ShareMouse product, which works as advertised and is usually sold at about $25 USD per computer, being offered at less than $10 per computer. And you are COMPLAINING!?!?! About a measly $9.98 with NO sales tax?!?!?

Looking at this message board, you can see that the company is responsive and serious about support. I downloaded the trial, found that it really works, and bought several licences (including one for USB).

Don't be a putz - these developers need to earn a little money for their efforts - and $9.98 is a little, even per licence.

Jeff Titamer I generally do not complain but I do like to respond to accusations of complaining. First of all. I have been very tempted by this offer, I also feel that it is a great deal at this price, even per computer. I don't however feel comfortable dealing with a group which fails to see the point that potential customers try to make by suggesting that a two computer license be standard for the first purchase. That said, I almost made the purchase myself when I had just a little over ten dollars in my bank account. I'm glad I realized just before I bought it that I would need two licenses though or I would have been broke and still not have use of the software. If anything I have said offended anybody here then I truly apologize since that was not my intention. I am also pretty sure that when software is submitted here it is in part to test the already existing market for software out to get feedback such as competition because that is what drives our economy and keeps prices low. I am not one of those who can afford 100's or thousands of dollars for expensive software so I don't own any. I always look for the competitors and even free versions at times, as for now, I have settled for a free version software that works great for me. I will not mention the name of it out of respect for this sale though. I do believe that anyone who purchases this will be getting a great deal at this price. And if the deal runs in the near future say like after Christmas when I don't have kids gifts on my shopping list, I would definitely get at least two licenses and a USB License too. Hopefully I've cleared things up and NOBODY has gotten offended.

Temp Tek For months Ive been debating whether or not to pull the trigger on sharemouse and purchase.... Im usually an impulse buyer that doesnt pay much attention to price and I think sharemouse is a great product... But I still cant get around the way in which Bartels media has represented its Licensing and Freeware policies for the following reasons...

1)"The Sharemouse Freeware Policy" is total BS .. Sharemouse is not free for anybody because a quick read of your definition of what a "Power user" is totally encompasses everyone with more than one pc/monitor.. So anyone who would ever need your product is automatically a power user and must pay. The freeware policy is nonexistent...I feel like Sharemouse/Bartels Media wasted my time reading through a bogus freeware policy. Strike One.
2) Sharemouse provides the user with no functionality with one license. The only reason anyone would need sharemouse is to use across 2 or more pc/monitors... There are plenty of software developers that charge a fee for each licensed pc running their software....but each pc would gain some functionality with each license for the use of the software . Sharemouse provides no functionality on only one pc... So basically Bartels Media would be happy to sell you "One sock" with a straight face. This to me is totally dumb....

3) The marketing of sharemouse sucks...and here's why.... In sales it is difficult enough to convert a potential customer into a paying customer Once... Now here they are making the customer feel like they have to pay twice... No matter how you cut it, when the customer goes to checkout all that is going through their head is..."I cant believe theyre trying to get me to buy 2 licenses for a product that is useless with only one license".... Sharemouse is being marketed as a bicycle with one wheel.....Totally dumb!

So with that said,......I have not purchased sharemouse because I believe the freeware policy is bogus, and secondly because I believe when someone buys shoes.... they should get both the right and left foot....Sharemouse should be sold with 1 license for up to 2 Pcs....to me that is fair and reasonable.
I have no issues with adding licenses for anything above 2 pc/monitors. Believe it or not.. If Bartels media would have said $49 for up t o 2 pcs... instead of $24 for each license... I prolly would have bought sharemouse already... So basically what Im saying is... I have money and dont mind paying 50 bux for quality.. But the marketing sucks. And at the end of the day...its tough to make the sale when the customer has a bad taste in their mouth because of phony freeware policies, ridiculous descriptions of "Power users" etc as well as the "Buy One for the price of Two" sales pitch.... So IMHO.... Epic fails when it comes to converting the sale. Hopefully Bartels media will reconsider the way they market such a great product and maybe Ill buy it!

Please read http://www.keyboard-and-m...eeware.htm which rather says "Use with a total of more than two monitors."

That sig may be established at purchase - but if Bartels Media goes out of business, or is bought by Google, how does that leave us with a hardware-locked/Bartels-dependent piece of software? Can we change hardware components, deauthorise and reauthorise, uninstall and move to another computer?
These 'phone home' systems protect publishers but can leave buyers with severely malfunctional software purchases.

Loco Driver I purchased this application the last time ShareMouse was offered on BitsDuJour. At first I was hesitant because I'd have to buy 3 licences (Two desktops and a laptop) but I'm glad I did. I probably use this software more than any other that I've purchased. It has become the replacement for "sneaker-net". No more plugging & unplugging memory chips or thumb-drives.

Windows allows you to "share" folders, but this is SO much easier. Say my wife creates or downloads a file and I want to take a closer look, I just move my mouse cursor to her screen, click and drag it to my screen.

Also, my wife isn't the most technically inclined, so if she hits a snag I don't have to grab her keyboard & mouse, I just move my mouse into her video and fix the problem while she watches.

Thanks Bartels -

There's been some confusion about the ShareMouse licensing setup. In a nutshell, ShareMouse is a la carte. And we think that's a nice thing.

Say you want to pay for 3 licenses instead of 4? With this setup, you can do it! Say you already have four ShareMouse licenses and simply want to pick a 5th? With this setup, you can do it.

Hope that clears it up.

Marc Beisner I just bought 5 licenses of ShareMouse. Duing the last years I tested a lot of different solutions and dedicated software for this purpose. Problem with the other solution is the lack of features in terms of supporting platforms and usability. InputDirector is fine if you only use Windows bases systems. Synergy is good for a mix of different operating systems, but can be a real pain to set up. For me, ShareMouse seems to be the best overall solution.

Louis H I like this, and am thankful it was extended for another day. At $75 for three licenses it would not be going into my toolbox, but for the price of one license plus 5$, I'm in.

It is not that it is not worth the $75, it is simply a matter of budget.

I have three systems that I use and have wanted to set them up next to each other, but the space I have to work in has not been very conducive to this due to needing three keyboards and three mice, and so I have three separate workstation areas.

This utility will allow me to restructure my workstations down to one. Which is really nice, since I desperately need some more room for bookshelves!

HJ B Using this program on two ms windows 8 64bit computers. There is no explicit statement in the materials that says this program supports Windows 8.

1. Move to edge of screen is not a sufficiently controllable feature. In normal course, on a busing computer, one has to be more alert to the position of the cursor in order to avoid shift to another computer. That is easier said than done. Also, if one moves toward the close window (X) button, it is easy to overshoot and find oneself on the the other computer. Also, in windows 8, the right side of the monitor is the means by which one gets to the windows 8 basic system controls.

2. I would, nevertheless, like this program if I could disable to mouse-window edge control, and use only a key combination to achieve the same result. However, nothing I have read in the sort of manual or on the company website tells me how to disable the window edge control without also disabling the key combination. In addition, I have tried to create key combination controls on both computers, and the selected key combinations produce no result, whatsoover. Perhaps the program is not compatible with Windows 8

Overtkill What makes ShareMouse stand apart from free apps like Microsoft Garage's Mouse Without Borders, or Synergy? I've been using Mouse without borders for a while, with very few issues, to control workstations and a few servers here in house.

I guess what I am driving at is what makes your software worth the price vs. free applications that do the same thing with the mouse sharing over the network. I'd genuinely be interested if it had some additional options the others don't. I love a good multitasker in the way of utilities. :)

Thanks for offering your software! :)

L Christopher I want to use this with two computers. But I have 3 screens. But I really only want to share one screen between the two computers. i.e. Two screens for one computer and one screen for the second computer. Is this possible with the ShareMouse Standard?

Bartels Media GmbH @bvssunnydale: Mouse/keyboard is transmitted via the local network, so all computers must be networked.

@L Christopher: If 3 monitors connected, you would need the Professional Edition. ShareMouse cannot identify if connected monitors are used or not. If you detach the third monitor, the Standard Edition would be fine.

Bartels Media GmbH @Overtkill: We'd suggest to try out ShareMouse. You will recognize the difference in the very first minute.

* Extremely easy auto-setup. No manual config needed.

* ShareMouse works in any direction (vs. static client/server roles).

* ShareMouse has an unparalleled multi-monitor support & adjustment.

* ShareMouse works rock-solid between Mac and Windows.

Anggie Bratadinata I used synergy for years but the last version i installed did not work on my macbook & reinstalling an older version didn't work either. So i looked for an alternative and found sharemouse. It worked right out of the box with my setup, 2 computers ( mac & windows ) + 4 screens.

So I've been using it since ver. 1.0 & never had any problems whatsoever.

If you have multiple computers on your desk, just buy sharemouse. You won't regret it.

Robert Crombie Is this the Standard or the Pro version ?

When the year is up, does it stop working
OR
Keep working, but upgrades cease, after that year

If I have a few PCs, but my main one is always running (I will pretend that it is the 'server PC' and it is in there that I would install your program).
Can I share with any one of my other PCs, as long as that 'other PC' and the 'server PC' are the only two running. Thus 1 and 2 can run, then I can turn off 2, and start PC 3. Etc

If it is the Standard version that we are buying, then I assume that my scenario's would not break the 'only 2 PCs can be connected' rule ?

Thanks,

I too run 3 monitors and drive multiple systems. My solution was to take one of the 2 end monitors and add a decent KVM switch between the connection. This way you can still use whatever mouse/keyboard sharing program you wish, and not lose any screen real estate on your main system.

With the other computer is on the switch, all you have to do is pick a direction to move the mouse into that session. This configuration works for me as I use the other systems part time on my main displays.

James Ayton Does not have screensaver sync support, so if you do not switch to a computer for a period of time equal to it's screensaver timeout, it will trigger the screensaver and lock the session.

Also can't lock the session with the WIN + L windows hotkey on the other computer like you can with synergy.

It will take some getting used to.

Matt Hello,

I purchased 4 licenses of ShareMouse 1.x on an earlier BDJ promotion.

When trying to install the 1.x version, I get a pop-up window saying that the installation file is out-of-date and I am prompted to download the latest 2.x version.

When refusing to download the newest 2.x version, my 1.x installation then terminates.

Why can I no longer install my older 1.x version. I only have the options of either purchasing 2.x licenses or nothing at all.

Thanks.

And if I could combine that question with my earlier question (as I did not grasp your answer completely) -
Say I have my main PC called PC1.
I purchase one copy of what is offered today, for $7.98 and install it in my main PC1
Today I fire up my PC2 (PC1 and PC2 running)
Do I need to install the program into there as well ?
If so, do I need another $7.98 purchase ?
Tomorrow comes and I have PC1 running, and on that day I start up PC3
(PC1 and PC3 running)
Do I need to install your program into PC3.
And if I do, do I need to purchase another copy ?
The day after tomorrow, I have PC1 running, and I start up PC4
(PC1 and PC4 running)
Is that going to be a good day for me ?

Johnathan Stein I already had a good experience with this company's "MaxiVista" product, so I bought this, as they don't usually have a "sale".

ShareMouse is a painless install, with only one "gotcha" - it does not have a "start with Windows" option, so I did a copy & paste to the STARTUP folder.

While Microsoft's GarageMouse/Mouse-without-Borders is not bad, it is not maintained -- it's a one-off research by-product. FYI, the Copy & Paste works OK, but the Drag & Drop won't go where you drop -- it wants to use it's "home" folder.

Whereas this company, BartelsMedia, is on version 2 of ShareMouse.

ShareMouse is well designed and works transparently -- I don't have to think about it or futz with it. Good quality, like MaxiVista. The screen dim, mouse trail when switching, etc. show that the features are well thought-out.

There is a "freebie" version, but with limits -- no copy & paste, password, etc.

Johnathan Stein @Robert Crombie --

1. You only pay ONCE.

2. If you want to control more than 2 PCs, or if one of the PCs has 2+ monitors, you will need the PRO version, which is $20. The STANDARD version, which is $8, is only for 2 PCs, with 1 monitor each.

3. The software must be installed on each machine you want to control.

Once installed, you can control any machine from any mouse & keyboard. It's very slick. Password is optional, in case others near you (on the same local net) use the software, too.

The only issue I've found is that the Install program does not have a "Start with Windows" option. Just copy & paste "Launch ShareMouse" from the Start Menu to the Startup folder.

There is a freebie version at their website, if you want to try-before-you-buy.

I bought the PRO version, as I have used this company's other products. Good stuff.

Robert Crombie Bartels Media,
Thanks for response.
I was about to purchase (the Pro version), when I noticed this on your FAQ -
Can I use ShareMouse with just one monitor?
No, each computer requires at least one monitor
There is ultimately no use for ShareMouse if any computer has no monitor. ShareMouse is not a Remote Desktop Software such as TeamViewer or VNC.

That would be of no use to me, as I have a single monitor that all my PCs use (I have a physical vga switcher)

Bartel,
If I kept my physical vga switcher WITH JUST ONE MONITOR, and install your Pro version in PC1, would my life be livable ?
Have you seen any set up like that, working acceptably ?

Rob

Robert Crombie Bartel,
Is there a more positive way to get the mouse/keyboard to switch ?
I can get it to leave PC1, for a few seconds, and then it returns.
Thus it is trying to pass control to PC2
If you had a hot key Such as Win Ctrl 2 which FORCED the mouse/keyboard to PC2 it would presumably be there waiting for me, when I used the vga switcher to view PC2 on my single monitor

I reckon there would be many, many people that are using a large single monitor with a couple of PCs running.

There must be a way to get a more forceful swap between the running PCs ?

Robert Crombie Bartel,
I discovered that hot key, and experimented with it, prior to posting my last post.
I could not get it to jump.
I would get the couple of second disappearance of the mouse pointer, but it would not appear on PC2
What I need it is a direct instruction to go to PC2.
Perhaps get your wee picture of the monitors to not only show the active one, but let us click on the the other one, and that will be the direct instruction to the program.
But I am open to anything that is more precise than the hot key you pointed me to.

Overtkill Impartial reviews are in the eyes of the readers...

Coming from the other side of the equation, I can say that this software isn't bad once you have it setup. There are some features that interfere with functionality. Many of the hot key functions had to be changed or disabled completely if you want to use standard control keys.. CTRL-S for example, is the emergency key assignment, this is also used in every other application to save a file. Once I turned that one off, and the "local input stops remote control" (Try this while using automation functions on a machine) functions, it worked like it should.

I would like to forewarn anyone who is about to use the trial, it will nag you to death until you register it. After a few hours, ShareMouse requires you to restart across all PC's. Being that a user would be using this software to control them, doesn't the developer realize what a huge pain in the keester this can be?? You guys should be doing this the way many others do, and get on the 30 day Pro Version trial system like everyone else. Users need more time to assess whether or not this will work for them, and not be bothered by being nagged into non-functioning software after a few hours of use. Your current method damn near made me not want to register this software due to this.

That said, what did sell me over Mouse without Borders, was the transition smoothness between machines, and a little less buggy in the switching between machines with stuff running like VMWare on a system. MWB hates to interact with VMWare running, it your other machine window is on the other side of the VMWare window, the mouse would bug out. Also, being a sysadmin, I found the password encryption feature is a nice security option. I am curious what level and type of encryption that is used.

Now, is it worth the cash? Not at full price, but not too terrible for $20 bucks through this offer. However, you cannot sell a unitasker (software with 1 main purpose) for those prices, and expect to do well. For that kind of pricing, you might want to bundle SM with some of your other applications, or build in additional tools to bolster its feature set. Users love a good utility that does loots of cool stuff. :) MWB on the other hand, is free, and so far the only real difference aside from a few small quirks there vs. SM, is that yours supports MAC's and is a bit smoother through transitions. Having used MWB for years now, that is about all I see that's any different.

You guys also have your software under several .com domains that are called upon for each app. You guys might want to rethink your website structure to only use the main company site for your product sales. This would probably help you move more licenses if users can see what you have to offer, no matter which program they are looking for. You're SM site for example, users can't find your other programs very easily.

The Conclusion: If you (the reader) can live with a few quirks, and prefer free, MWB is for you. If you want a little more polish to your program, and don't mind spending the cash on a small single purpose utility, and can tolerate nagware during a trial, give ShareMouse a shot. However, be ready with another mouse and keyboard on the other systems you hope to control during the trial, as it requires you to relaunch ShareMouse again and again after only a few hours of use.

Thanks for reading...

Johnathan Stein @Overtkill,

I did not have those issues, but I did register right after install.

Also, you might note there is a free version of ShareMouse, just without the Copy & Paste and Drag & Drop features.

Good point about consolidating websites (though it IS a German company, so they may tend to be a bit overly anal retentive...lol)

Bartels Media GmbH @Overtkill: CTRL-S is no default hotkey in ShareMouse. You may have accidentally configured it yourself. We would not recommend to use such hotkey.

> Once I turned that one off, and the "local input stops remote control" (Try this while using automation functions on a machine) functions, it worked like it should.

This feature can come handy and prevents accidentally cancelling remote control sessions if the remote computer’s mouse is touched by accident. You may not need it so you can switch it off.


> Users need more time to assess whether or not this will work for them

This certainly is valid for other types of programs but we don’t believe that you need 30 days to evaluate ShareMouse features. We would be curious to learn if there is anything you would need to evaluate that you can’t with the current demo?

Overtkill Being a Sysadmin, a lot of what I do is automation programming. Some of the issues I described where local programs are running and performing actions in these cases, I had to disable the local input functionality. It continually interrupted the session and made it difficult to interact.

I also ran into an issue yesterday, where both machines could see one another, but for whatever reason, would not let either PC lead the session, and taking the mouse to the given direction seemed to stick the pointer into no mans land. Only after moving the mouse repeatedly back into the proper direction, was I able to get the pointer back.

I went through all the obvious stuff, including security software and what not to no avail. Restarted both machines, reinstalled SM from scratch both machines, After about an hour of fidgeting, I was able to get it to work again. The host PC (my main) seemed to lose the screen configuration info for the other machine, trying to make Monitor D (second puter) into Monitor A, which is 1 of 3 monitors on the main system.

To me, the issue seemed to be not only config, but also seemed to be related to licensing. I realize that you guys revamped it for version 2, but I think it still needs work. Maybe build in a secondary machine installation to negate any licensing issues between host and clients instead of trying to pass licensing data to the other systems. This seemed to be the issue for me as the second PC acted like it wanted to host the session, even though the other machine had the license. This also occurred whether or not any security software was enabled on both systems. With both disabled, SM exhibited the same behavior over a clean hard wired professional environment (decent cat6e and gigabit switching hardware).

If this behavior keeps happening, I will be asking for a refund. I do not have time to burn when I need this application functioning. I would ordinarily drive the system remote, but in this case, I have to have desktop access to the server. Mouse Without Borders, while having bugs of its own, has never cut me off completely from a remote system. I guess its a good thing I keep a wireless keyboard and mouse on that system for bios configuration changes.

Dax User I have Laptop computer which I run with the lid-closed using an external monitor.

Will the standard edition treat this as the two-computer/monitor limit?

Bartels Media GmbH @Dax: Try the demo and count the monitors in the monitor manager to check whether the 3rd monitor is detected: http://download.keyboard-...haring.com

Bartels Media GmbH @Jeremy: ShareMouse requires a local network. VPN may work if properly configured but we don't support it if it doesn't work. Please try the free demo: http://download.keyboard-...haring.com

John H I purchased the pro version. I have a total of 3 Windows computers.

Very very well done program!

The license registered computer must be considered the master and the other slaves.

I have registered ShareMouse on #1. It appears that #1 has to be on to use ShareMouse between #2 and #3 computers. Without #1 on, 2 and 3 revert to trial, works only for about 5 minutes and then prompts me to register. Then when I go to register I get all sorts of warnings about something or other with my license.
Grrr!!!

Let me register my purchase to each computer and the network. Do away with the master slave concept.

I do not want all of my computers turned on if I only need two.

John H I have been using this for several months. It works perfect if you have several computers in one place that never move. Be prepared to turn it off after boot up if you wander around with the computers. It is easy to loose track of your mouse.

Now I am removing Share Mouse because I am tired of shutting it down when I do not need it.

The problem is that the registration is such that I have to deregister my license key or I loose it forever.

The only thing worse than people who steal software are developers that sell you a program and steal back from you.

I am sure there is a way around this but I am too busy to jump through hoops.

I do not recommend this unless all your computers are one fixed setup.
