Teamviewer ID Generator

I clone PCs and, sometimes, the cloned PCs have the same TV ID. When that happens, I go to the system registry, and change the MAC address, and a new TV ID is created. Now, this can only be done locally on the PC , not remote, since, it takes affect on reboot, and I wont know what the TV ID is after reboot. Is there a way to generate the TV ID BEFORE I change the MAC and reboot, so, I can connect after I change the MAC?

    Unfortunately, this is not possible to do.

    yes, thanks for the previously available information. when I find a duplicate TV ID, I change the MAC address, and Teamviewer generates a new ID. Is there a way to generate the ID with the changed MAC BEFORE I change the MAC and reboot, so, I can connect after I change the MAC?

    didnt think so, but was hoping.

    I have not tried this, but:

    If I were to change the MAC address on a PC that I am remoted in with Teamviewer, would the ID change imediately? and, if so, would I be disconnected right away?
