    If you have multiple workstations with Synapse installed, you might be able to use Dropbox to sync all the desktops.

    This is untested ... but the procedure might be

    1. Install dropbox
    2. Place synapse.exe in the dropbox directory
    3. Now create a symbolic link from your synapse directory to the dropbox directory version of synapse.exe

    So if your dropbox directory is c:\users\graham\my dropbox\

    then put synapse.exe into that dropbox directory.

    Then in your c:\emr ( or wherever you normally use Synapse from ), create a symbolic link ( Vista/Windows 7)

    cd c:\emr\
    mklink synapse.exe "c:\users\graham\my dropbox\synapse.exe"
    Now, if you update any version of Synapse, they will all update.

    You can do this with other files too such as your spelling dictionary, and custom icd9.r

    See http://wiki.dropbox.com/TipsAndTricks/SyncOtherFolders for more details
