"TeamViewer is trying to install a new helper too" makes the app quit after password validation, I have tried the different solutions found on the web but mentioning Sierra, but it still quits... I am on big sur mac

Does anyone has a solution please?... Thank you!

    Thank you for contacting TeamViewer Community.

    Hello TeamViewer,

    I connected up to my office Mac fine last week, but have problems connecting today? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi @Max_L2z

    Thanks for your post. We are happy to see you here again.

    In order to assist you, we would need more information πŸ˜… What issue are you facing? Screenshots if possible?

    But since you wrote "office Mac" and I assume this is urgent, I would recommend reaching out to our dedicated department directly via phone πŸ“ž. My colleagues will be happy to assist with your individual needs

    Would this work for you?

    Best, Alena

    Having the same issue with Big Sur and Catalina. I hit cancel and it pops up, so I hit cancel a second time and it goes away. I hit Install Helper and it pops back up again, so I hit Install Helper a second time and it goes away -- it does literally nothing either way.

    Hi Alena,

    I have tried ringing, but because I'm using a free version of TV, the answerphone lady directs me to the website? Could you let me know how to disable the following message that keeps appearing please (screenshot attached).

    Kind regards,

    Hi Max,

    thanks for your answer. I have merged your posts about the helper tool into the corresponding thread.

    Please have a look at my colleagueΒ΄s answer @Natascha

    Have you try to run the command in the Terminal: sudo launchctl enable system/com.teamviewer.Helper and re-run the installation of TeamViewer?

    Thanks for checking

    Best, Alena
