Commercial use - Connection time out

    Analogpanther  I had a similar problem many years ago when Teamviewer was just starting out. At that time a phone call was enough and until a few months ago I could use Teamviewer privately without any problems - on the same, now obsolete - hardware. It will certainly not be that easy anymore.
    Today I would first try to reach something via the "Management Console". (Menu : Connection - Open User Managament). There all computers and accounts should be listed. and you should be able to delete all company computers and accounts.

    If this does not work, there is at least access to support, maybe at the expense of the company, but quickly

    I get the below message when I try to connect to my new laptop from my office pc which is downstairs in the family room next to my old laptop which I can connect to successfully with no message, why now with just the new laptap?

    TeamViewer plan upgrade required

    Your current TeamViewer plan does not include connections to customized TeamViewer modules.  Your session will therefore be terminated after a short time.  Please upgrade to a higher plan to use this functionality.

    How can this be corrected to work?

    As a workaround I uninstalled version 15.4.7, restarted my computer, and installed a previous version I downloaded previous 14.x.x version (**Please do not post TeamViewer IDs**.**Please do not post TeamViewer IDs**.**Please do not post TeamViewer IDs**-**Please do not post TeamViewer IDs**.**Please do not post TeamViewer IDs**).. Problem solved.

    Recently, I ended up with the next 15.x.x update and the problem seems to have been fixed.

  • Good day. The program mistakenly established commercial use. It is not true. I use this program for personal purposes only. How can this be fixed? I do not have the opportunity to use the program as before.

    8.7.2020 Yes, this is a real pain in the **bleep**. Why TeamViewer have this policy only makes the good product TV look bad. I think perhaps there is a new "manager" who thinks this policy is good, which is why TV is hanging onto it dispute all the complaints. There are other alternatives. @ Teamviewer: Please drop this policy and charge a small fee for use private users and have done with it. So many people complaining should wake up even your most less than optimal manager(s).

  • I suddenly also today.
    Possible bug with Teamviewer.
    I wait quietly, otherwise fill this in.

    My Friend and I help out AMATEUR RADIO people with Teamviewer regularly and recently he was BLOCKED by Teamviewer.   AMATEUR RADIO is a hobby where we make absolutely no money, so why was he blocked for helping too many people out?

    How can this be resolved as it gives us a bad feeling using Teamviewer and who will be next to be banned for freely helping others in our hobby?

    It would be wise to put all your ID /Self and Contacts) and send it to TV. This is a real Pain In The **bleep**...still TV is persuing this policy. Look for an altzernative is the best advice I can offer-

    Hey, when I connected my computer to a laptop, the system considered that I was using the Teamviwer for commercial purposes. What's wrong? I worked with him for over a year without errors.

    I have also the same problem. I got reply from Teamviewer saying: "Your TeamViewer ID has been reset to free TV: (number digit)". But still getting commercial use alert and can not connect for more than 1 minute, it seems.
