Silent/Unattended or otherwise low-input install?
I have a corperate licence for teamveiwer 12 and have created a custom team viewer host installer.
This is going to be rolled out to a few diffrent machines right now and its no problem to install through the GUI, but in the future I'd like for this to be automated.
All rollouts/installs are idential, use the same installer, will all need to have Unattended access (with the same password) and they all have the same settings.
Given all the installs will be identical, how do I make this installs sans user-input?
Welcome to the TeamViewer Community.
I am wondering if my Blog article about silent host rollout will help you. There is also a Knowledge Base article about the topic.
I hope, this helps you.

So wait, I have to first run the Teamviewer setup, using the gui, and then this assignment tool? On all devices....that's not what I want. That's the opposite of what I want. Thats more steps.
I need to install the custom team veiwer host file with minimal clicking/typing.0
I have done this for version 10 and 11, but not version 12. (My v.11 installs upgrade to 12 very quickly so there hasn't been any trouble.)
There is a good guide called "TeamViewer 10 Manual MSI", it about 20 pages that covers silent installs, group policy, and automatic account assignment.
You have a corporate license which means you can download the *.msi installers.
- Manually install TeamViewer (Host) and configure everything the way you like it.
- In Options > Advanced > (show advanced options) > Export optons to a *.reg file
- Make sure to use the file name TeamViewer_Settings.reg
- The MSI and the REG file need to be in the same directory.
- A silent install can be started with the following command.
msiexec /I TeamViewer_Host.msi /qn
There are a lot of things that you will need to consider. Make sure you test everything, like I said, I haven't done this with v.12. Your install command will need to be adjusted to suit your needs (file path). If you want a custom logo or automatic account assignment, you should read the manual carefully.5
Silent install or otherwise one-click automation is completely broken in version 12.x I have spent the last two months tring to do this with no success. The asigment tool completely unnessacry and thus makes it nearly impossbile to deploy without some very heavy scripting.
I feel that TeamViewer develpoers are passing this on to the concumers.0
