I'm trying to connect a Windows 10 (Home) PC with a Mac OS 10.9.5 (Maverick).  According to the following link, I am supposed to be using, "OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) TeamViewer 9-12."
https://community.teamviewer.com/t5/Knowledge-Base/Which-operating-systems-are-supported/ta-p/24141

On the Mac, I installed Teamviewer version 9.0.43731 from the following link:
https://www.teamviewer.com/en/download/old-versions.aspx#version9

On the PC, I downloaded 9.0.41110, but when I install it, it says the version is 9.0.9xx from the same page listed above.

When I attempt to connect the PC to the Mac, I receive a message stating, "The remote TeamViewer is running an old version which is out of date. Therefore you cannot connect to this Version anymore."

So, on the PC, I installed 8.0.44109 from the following link, thinking that with the PC now having a version older than the Mac, it will give me a different message.
https://www.teamviewer.com/en/download/old-versions.aspx#version8

I tried to connect to the Mac, still running version 9, but received the same error messsage.

On the Mac, I then installed TeamViewer version 8.0.2.0942, using the above link.  I still get the error message that the Mac is running an older version and cannot connect.

Note:  I cannot update the OS on the Mac any higher than 10.9.5 due to software I have running on it that I need, which will not run on a newer OS.

Can somone please help me connect these two systems?  BTW they are both running the FREE personal license of TeamViewer.

Thank you!

    I have a mac os x 10.9.5 with Teamviewer version 12.0.2, it seems it's the last update available for this mac. On the Windows 10 PC I had the last Teamviewer version. I couldn't connect to the pc from the mac, and a thread here said I need to have the same version or older on the pc to be able to connect from the mac. So I downloaded version 12.0.2 to the PC. Still can't connect because now it says I'm using an old version on the pc. Can someone please advice?

    @KROE86I know this is a few months old, but Team Viewer's free tier only supports the current version (15), not legacy versions (here). I am trying to solve the EXACT SAME PROBLEM:

    • **Third Party Product** with some added security seems like a more involved solution.
    • **Third Party Product**is also a possiblity, but it's browser based and might not have the features you're looking for.
    • **Third Party Product** is for mac10.10 and newer
    • The built in Preferences>Sharing>Screen Sharing in Mac OS 10.9.5 might do the trick, but again it's more involved (open port 5900 and point it to a reserved IP for your machine) and requires a VNC client of some sort. I got this to work but it doesn't carry sound, which is necessary for my purposes.
