    Same here, for some reason Teamviewer thinks I'm using this for business? But thi is wrong as I'm using this for personal usage only!

    All the computers I connect to are either mine, from my family or VMs in my computers.

    All the activity with it is completely private (non-commercial). 

    I work in an IT company and we do have a Teamviewer Licence for Teamviewer 10, though I myself never use it as I am not part of direct technical support as I work in software development.

    Could someone please remove the messages about 'Commercial' warning from my account... Clicking "ok" is annoying enough.

    Even my 'work computer', is my personal computer.

    This is something you have to do yourself.  The links are provided.   You can google "team viewer suspected of commercial use" and the forms you need to complete can be found or you can scroll up.    

    No one in the community forum can "do anything" but point you to those links or suggest you contact tech support.  

    Good luck and those links do work.  I no longer have the "suspected of commercial use" warnings anymore and they know I use it just for hobby.

    Hi, I using your software from a long time, a few days ago I received a warning telling me that I use it commercially, thus blocking the session. I want to clarify that I do not use it for commercial purposes, I simply connect to my home pc while I'm away. Can you help me solve the problem?

     

    Salve, utilizzo il vostro software da molto tempo, qualche giorno fa mi è comparso un avviso dicendomi che ne faccio un uso commerciale bloccandomi così la sessione. Ci tengo a precisare che non lo utilizzo per fini commercili, semplicemente mi collego al mio pc fisso di casa mentre sono via. Potete aiutarmi a risolvere il problema?

     

    Grazie in anticipo

    Good morning all.

    I had an email response to my “personal verification” request this morning.

    My usage has now been set to private due to my logs indicating private use only. I presume my explanation came into play also.

    They reiterated what is personal use and is business use. If the day ever comes that it is needed for business use I’ll happily purchase a licence.

    Good luck everyone.

    I have the same problem since two days. I used teamviewer for private use since months without any problem and now i'm recognized like commercial and kicked after 30 sec.

    Hope they will fix it.

    I haver the same issue since the last week.

    I sent report personally to the branch in my country but couldn't receive any reply.

  •  @andsim  Windows Pro is NOT a server. Server Editions of Windows are actually called "Windows Server YYYY" (where "YYYY" is the year). Take a look at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Microsoft_Windows_versions You will find one section for "regular" editions of Windows and another section listing "server" editions.

    I believe if you run Teamviewer on a server, you are probably considered a "commercial" user. I have never connected to (or from) a machine running a server version of Windows.

    thank you @RCraddz

  • @RCraddz  This thread deals with a time-out issue, NOT with a "commercial use" issue. As I mentioned earlier in this thread, I had the problem of Teamviewer getting set to "commercial" at an earlier occasion. I submitted a "problem report" and had an answer the next  morning: "Thank you very much for your message. I set your ID to private, non-commercial usage, because I believe you that you do only use TeamViewer for private use. So you are now able to use the free, non-commercial version again."  The issue I (and others participating in this tread) am having this time around is, that Teamviewer times out after 30 seconds or so and unceremoniously kicks me out. There is no mention of commercial use and, if the message from TV is to be believed, they have manually set my account to "non-commercial"

    well @TheAncient the only problem is, we dont have such "report a problem" option....I can only see a feedback option but i already sent them a message via feedback and no reply for more than weeks now.

    No conneection to a server for me.

    And the "commercial suspected" and not really the solution as it happens to many users suddenly without any reason. It is a bug and they should fix it.

    I already sent a feedback to their support and claimed regarding this "non ommercial" user.

    No answer so far. No really a good publicity if they want to sell the commercial version...

  • In that case, maybe the form linked by RCraddz can get a reaction out of them. I just wanted to make sure we're talking about the same issue here: Commercial use is one issue which, in my case, was addressed by TV. Time-outs is a different issue which, as far as I know, has not been addressed by TV.
  • my friend and I installed teamviewer and chose business version by mistake, now we cant change it back to personal version (which is free), can you support guys help us?

    I submited the above mentioned link 3 days before. No answer yet . They noticed there that the answer could be up to 30 days. So I'm not sure there will be any answer at all

    Yeah - but I've had no response in a week - hopeless.

     

    I guess its another push to cull the home users.

    I am having this same issue. How am I able to contact you regarding this? I use TeamViewer often and I am unable to connect for more than one minute as of late.

    I have this problem too and it is driving me nuts.  I am in Mexico and I am trying to help my wife in Canada with her computer and I keep getting kicked off.    It used to be good for using to help family and friends but not anymore.

    I kept getting the commercial use warning and getting closed within seconds even after sending the file Teamviewer wants and being told the first time they believed I was personal use only and they had reset it to Free but it still did not work, then the next teamviewer "engineer" tells me I am using it for Commercial reasons.  

    I did not touch the MAC address on my main computer that I use to connect to two other ones in my house for personal use only.

    What I did was delete Teamviewer Appdata, then searched and deleted in the registry anything Teamviewer, then uninstalled Teamviewer using Revo Uninstaller and scanning for remnants, then rebooting.  Next I installed a new copy of Teamviewer Free.  It made a different Teamviewer number than before.  So far it works and it's been on for half an hour with both other computers. I changed nothing on the two remote computers.

    Hi there,

    i have a problem with a free version of TeamViewer. We are using it in a band to mirror a laptop, which contents the Textsheets, to an ipad. After a while the connection gets lost. And the time of connection gets shorter. Why is this happening and can this be solved without needing to buy a pro-license?

    thanks in advance for your help!
