Teamviewer require administrator password when updating to TW 13


When I tried to updating my Teamviewer I get a window up(teamviewer windows) which require administrator-username and password. I have tried with my normal logging, that same one I log in to Teamviewer management console but it does not accept it. I don't have any other type of account attached to this account. I pretty sure I don't setup any form of admin account.

Please Help

  • Yeah, after update to V13, teamviewer require  root password to connection to TW servers.

    Without passowrd only LAN connection supported.

    TW starts from arhive in HOME directory

    Niklaschr is absolutely correct.  What worked for me on a windows 10 account was to login as my microsoft user but with a period in front followed by a slash.
