Photoshop CS6 can't hold down left click button. I can click with the left click button on my mouse but it doesn't seem to register that the button is held down, and I can't draw anything because of this problem. I cant even hold down the left click on the tool bars to show me more options either.

I've also talked to a representative but nothing that i've tried worked. From re-installing, to changing preferences. Please help me if you can =).

I have the same problem, with default HID Drivers from Microsoft and the official Logitech drivers. But its not only that holding mouse buttons do not work, holding keyboard keys does not work either.

The same problem is reported in here:

I dont know if Richard Duong use the same os, but currently using using Win8 RP Build 8400 x64.

My Keyboard is an old Logitech G15 and the mouse is the Logitech G700.
The Problem occurs also in adobe illustrator cs6 but not in adobe fireworks cs6.

I can try it out with win 7 too, but i dont think it would make any difference. Its sad because I cant use your product like this. Its impossible.

Thanks for this thread - deleted Synergy and PS CS6 works as expected now, would have never figured it out without the information here and I have been looking for a while.

Wow mrgreywater, I have nearly the exact setup but mine is a G11 keyboard. I get the same results in CC or CS6. I turned off both Synergy processes and instantly it WORKS again. I haven't purchased the new Synergy version. And Windows Update ruined the old versions functionality.
