Windows Server Essentials 2019 and TeamViewer


We plan to purchase Windows Server Essentials 2019 license for the purposes of our small business. However, we use TeamViewer for technical support, so my question is whether TeamViewer will work on this edition, knowing the fact that WS Essentials does not support RDS. 

Thank you

    Hello i have installed also this **bleep** of software (windows server 2019 essentials) and i can not login to server by Teamviewer until someone open RD connection. Server has no connected monitor, keyboard and mouse. RDP connection work but only 2 connection in one time. And without oppened RDP connection Teamviewer show me only black screen. If i open RDP connection Teamviewer show me screen. Is there any option or setting how to fix this?

    Thank you.

    Hello @POSOFT,

    Thank you for your message and welcome to the TeamViewer Community! ?

    You need to enable the multi-user functionality to get it working.

    We explain how to proceed in this Knowledge Base article right here: TeamViewer on Windows servers

    I hope this could help. ?

    Stay safe and sane! ?
