The wrong computer is the master/primary, how do I switch that?

I installed the program on the slave computer first and then on my prime computer, and the mouse from the slave controls the primary computer just fine, but that is not what I want.

I also did the setup again, which didn't change anything, and I uninstalled and reinstalled the app on both computers, but I still cannot get the primary computer mouse to be the primary.

Surely there is a setting or registry entry that tells the software which one is primary.

Have you tried clicking on "go through the setup experience" link a tthe bottom of the Machine Setup dialogue. I would do that on the the PC that you want to be the primary first - then do it on the secondary PC after.

Hopefully this helps.

I have the same issue and "go through the setup experience" only works for some time, then my Primary mouse/keyboard become unusable and I can control both PCs from the secondary set... Very frustrating.... Any other ideas?

I've uninstalled the program from both computers. Used CCleaner to clean the registry. Reinstalled (all defaults) and yet only my HP's (HP and a Dell) keyboard actually works across the two computers. 
Could this be due to a networking issue? I think it works fine at home (will double check and report back) but not at school (over their wifi; yes, I've mapped the IPs)
Cheers!

Maybe this will help - I could be wrong but there isn't a master as far as I know. In my experience any of the PCs can start moving the mouse when it's working properly. However, on all the PCs - would you please look and see that the other PCs have two, both Connected -> and under that a Connected <-. Arrow points right/away on the first, and left toward the word Connected on the second. I think that's outbound and inbound. You may find that one has a firewall port inbound blocked and that one may appear like a 'master' that can't be controlled.
