How to get UAC to co-operate with synergy2

How do I get UAC to behave so that I can control the dimmed desktop and programs running under UAC grants with synergy client? (The kb and mouse are connected to a Linux machine, windows is running synergy client)

If you use a 1.4 or newer beta of Synergy, you can configure it to run as a service. As a service, Synergy runs as the local SYSTEM account, which can interact with the Secure Desktop space. I have the Synergy 1.5 nightly builds running on my Windows Server 2008 R2 laptop client and OS X 10.6 laptop server, and I am capable of working with UAC prompts with ease.

"You can also try running synergy on the Windows machine as Administrator. Right click and select Run as Administrator.

It works for me."
