    Why my TeamViewer tells me my license is over when I'm just a free personal user? I look for answers and all the stuff I find where old pictures...

    How I can use my TeamViewer as normal?!

    Chances are you either selected Business or Both for type of use when you installed TeamViewer rescently. OR TeamViewer has suspected you are using it for Business use.

    You will need to go to this page: https://community.teamviewer.com/t5/Knowledge-Base/Why-do-I-see-TeamViewer-trial-Your-trial-period-has-expired/ta-p/5267. Review it and do what it says. Towards the bottom of the page is a link that brings you to a form you'll need to fill out and submit.

    Hi,

    As of today my 2 TW instances started to act as commercial ones (both of free). It makes impossible to use.

    Tried to open a support case but the form said my account cannot tied to a license (surprise, surprise Sherlock, those are free licenses), so support ticket cannot be opened.

    Why it starts act as a commercial license and how can it be changed back (beside of uninstalling and forgot TW for good)

    You will both need to go to https://www.teamviewer.com/en/support/personal-use-verification/ and fill out the form.

    Hello, 

    I am running TeamViewer on my personal laptopt, which I use at home  and at work, and another another computer at work. At home I connect from my laptopt to the computer at work because the ip of my research insitutute is registered to acces private research databases like webofknowledge.To whom may ai speak to still use the software for free?

    That's not answer of the question _WHY_ it started to acting this weird. Byt filled up the form and nothing happened as expected. (btw log files are mandtaroy? **bleep**? in the back office TW must see the assigned license)

    I guess TW is bit behind reality and thinks the lates insider build of Windows 10 is a server.... LOL.

    Hello there, 

    I think by mistake i installed teamviewer with trial for commercial use. After the peroid expired i tried to go to the free mode but i couldnt (which makes it impossible to connect to home pc ) i extended the peroid of the trial and i hope there is a fix for this issue meanwhile.

     

    Any suggestion?

  • My ticket number is 3156599

    I am also in the same situation, and haven't received any resolution. My use is personal, to help my wife, my kids, and my parents, I don't understand why I keep getting a "trial expired" message.

    Hello,

    I recently purchased a few computers from my work, they have previously been used in a commercial enviroment and we do have a Premium license with 2 channels. Since i purchased from my work i am now wanting to use them for my family with my personal account, but i am now getting the trial expired notice and i am locked out.. could i get these computer reset? or what process do i need to go through to acheive this? i looked at submitting a ticket but it says i need a lisence to do so..

    Thank you,

  • Hallo

    Wir haben versehentlich bei der Installation kommerzielle Nutzung statt nicht kommerzielle Nutzung ausgewählt. Nun läuft die Testversion ab, wenn wir in den Ferien (Lager) sind, von wo wir zwingend auf den Computer zu Hause zugreifen können müssen. 

    Wie kann von kommerzieller Nutzung zu nicht kommerzieller Nutzung geändert werden? Was passiert, wenn die Testversion abgelaufen ist?

    Danke für jede Hilfe!

    hello. I had a problem. I always have a free license, but few days ago I saw a message that has expired trial period. Tell me what do I do.true.jpg

    I can not access ``1 computer due to it saying it's going to disconnect in 5 minutes.  I've installed and reinstalled numerous times and it still says the same thing.

    It has now been over a week since I filled out the stupid form for you to correct my "Trial Period" problem.  Has anyone out in this community ever gotten their problem fixed?  Reply if you have and how long it took to get fixed. 

    I use this program maybe once a month which doesn't justify me paying for this service.  So I guess if you're a free customer and have problems good luck on getting anything resolved.  Anybody else who's fed up with this try **Third Party Product**.  It works a **bleep** of a lot better than Teamviewer and it's free with a pdf manual as well.

    I just started having this issue on a Windows 10 PC and an iMac.  I've used TV for several years and never received this message before.  I have not uninstalled or reinstalled, but do update when it asks to. I have 2 other PCs that have no issue whatsoever. I'd ssay this is more of a bug than anything.

  • My sessions also keep timing out at the most innappropriate times. I use version 12 free. Looking in the extras menue I do not even have the option to disable timeouts. It is most annoying!
